What's Up Wednesday? Paper Pleating
Today, I'm hosting the weekly What's Up Wednesday Challenge over in the My Favorite Things forum on SCS. Flutter on over and play along! My challenge is to do some paper-pleating and today's card is my sample. If you need a little how-to, I've got you covered there, too. Each week, MFT also has a How'd They Do That? tutorial, and today's is, of course, paper pleating.
The image, from MFT's Nite Nite, Ellie is partly paper pieced and partly colored with Copics. I added a little shading to her paper pieced pajamas with a Prismacolor pencil, too. The ovals and circles are cut with Nestabilities, the stitching is done by machine, and the ribbon comes from Close to My Heart. The lacy trim is something I picked up at my local fabric store (Hancock Fabrics). Patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Bittersweet line.
Thanks for stopping by!
