It is a dull day here in Scotland today, but a fantastic excuse not to do gardening and stay inside to craft!!!! I had a fab weekend so far! I am still helping my friend with the Lazer Cutting Machine to build up stock for a few big shows later this year, well saying that the 1st is only 4 weeks away, wow the time does fly when you do have fun!
Well it is again time for another monthly technique across at
SweetStamps.com and this month it is
I loved it so much I even created my back ground with the same paper as
what I used to do my paper piecing on my stamps and
created a quilt blanket effect.
This Months Technique Challenge across at SweetStamps.com!!!

Well here is my take on it!
I used a plain white card stock and made a 6 X 6 card
I made my background like a patchwork quilt with the squares
all measuring 3.5 cm and used the papers that I used
to do the Paper Piecing on my image
I layered it with plain red card stock
for my image I used the Mr & Mrs Snow Duo 207K from SweetStamps.com
The DP papers I used is from Wild Rose Studio - Traditional Christmas
I made the broom stick from a Tooth Pick and Butchers Twine
I added a bit of blink to both for buttons
I used 2 Spellbinders dies, the Grand Scalloped Oval and the Small Scalloped Oval
I used Distressed ink for the background
Here is my list I used from SweetStamps.com
