Art Impressions Paper Piecing



This lovely "young lady" wearing those "cat's eye" yellow sunglasses - oh my!  What was out of style is now back in style.  I paper pieced her shirt and her skirt with coordinating colors of background papers.  The flowers and grass were added with AI stamps.  The greeting is in the same set -- and will be perfect for my sister-in-law who will turn 85 years young in February. She will enjoy the verse.  I added a masked sun, and cloud with my own home made cloud template.  I used stiff acrylic from packaging, and cut a strip about 7 inches by 4 inches wide. I drew cloud "bumps" with a magic marker and cut it on the lines. Then I just sponged with a variety of colors to create the sky getting near dusk.

I hope my sister-in-law enjoys the card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Have a great day -- and get inky!
