This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is called ‘Bits and Pieces’ and the idea is to use up your scraps to make your ATC, with none of the pieces over 1″x 2″. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to use two of my favourite techniques – ‘paper-piecing’ and ‘serendipity’.
I made the background with the serendipity technique, tearing pieces of scraps and randomly adhering them to the backing card until it was completely covered, then trimming the edges to ATC size. I chose a Tilda stamp (Tilda Picking Grass), coloured her with Prisma pencils, and paper-pieced her outfit with coordinating pieces of scraps. The punched flowers were also made with scrap card, and I added the purple pearly gems to accent. The ‘serendipity’ text was made on the computer, cut out, and edged with purple ink. Finally, the ATC was edged with the same purple ink.
Come and join us in the challenge to recycle your scraps!
