Just Magnolia and Papertake Weekly

Hello everyone. Not been up to much today. Nipped out to Hobbycrap again to exchange some pencils. Thant's about it. What I have been doing since last night is messing about with this card to get it finished in time. Don't ask, lol!

This one is for 2 challenges again:

Just Magnolia Week 9 ~ Paper Piecing;
Papertake Weekly ~ Dawny's Sketch #17.

The image is Farmer Tilda, from Simon Says Stamp Store, and is coloured with Faber-Castell watercolour pencils. I have paper pieced her dungarees and have added some stickles to her wings and the centre of the flowers. The sentiment is Hampton Arts (AGAIN-I hear you say, lol). Cardstock is Coredinations and the papers are My Minds Eye "Wild Asparagus".

This is a wee view of the side:

This started off as a card and then I thought that the triangle shape looked like a flap so... I thought I would make an image wallet. I messed about with it for ages. I even bought some magnets at Hobbycrap to make the flap stick down... But, it just wouldn't sit right (magnets were rubbish too) and in the end...I gave up!! It is now an image wallet that stays open at the top, lol!

However, after all that, I really like it! I think my colouring is quite good on this one (who's big headed?!) And, I absolutely love her dungarees.
Hope you like it

I think it's fabulous Suzanne. I love the paper piecing - that plaid paper goes so well with the image chick. I love love LOVE the way you turned the sketch into a wallet - genius touch is that. Re getting things to stick down, have you tried the sticky on velcro? If you haven't and you want me to send you a bit to try, send me an e-mail with your addy and I'll stick a bit in the post for you. I use it all the time and it's wonderful. Thank you for joining us at Papertake Weekly. Hugs, Dawny xxxx
