Top Tip Tuesday
I've not long discovered the Top Tip Tuesday challenge blog it's well worth looking at all the tips and I've found a couple of things to do when hubby has finally put a work top in my craft room. I've had enough of my temporary fold up table which has been up for two years!! Still I supposed he will do it one day. Anyway I digress, the challenge is to use a favourite sketch .
I love doing 9 patch blocks in my patchwork and quilting and I sometimes carry it over into my papercraft
I have used squares of scrap papers, from the Papermania Colossal stack, which have been inked around the edges with a Memento ink pad and this is an 8 patch because I didn't use a centre square, hehe. The image is from Lili of the Valley and I've coloured it using ProMarkers and some paper piecing. I inked around the edge of the card and matted it onto another of the same papers which I also inked. Using a fine tipped ProMarker I did the 3 dot pattern to take away the bareness of the white card. I finished it all off with a stamped sentiment from the Woodware Tiny Phrases set.
