Will it be you? Week two challenge starts today!

The Summer Stamping Star challenge is in full swing over at Cornish Heritage Farms and WOW, everybody rocked the colouring challenge!

This week's challenge is one of my personal favourite techniques: paper piecing.

I thought I'd post a few of my favourite cards that I've made using this style as examples. One cool little tip I have to share which I have mentioned in the past is to use a white gel pen to colour the eyes when you are paper piecing. It saves a ton of time and looks pretty good when you're done (if I do say so myself).

This week's entries need to be uploaded to the CHF gallery under the week two challenge by next Monday!

I'll be back with some new projects shortly!
