Popped Paper Piecing!

Now there's one I challenge you to say after a few beverages!

Today's card is a result of one of the Back To School Crop challenges, I took part in last week over on the Two Scrapbook Friends forum. This particular challenge was to create a School/Teacher themed card, so although the school year has only just begun, I thought I'd get a head start on a 'Thank You' card. As the title suggests, there is definitely some popping and paper piecing going on, so here it is...........

I like the slightly, but not too much, vintage feel to this, mainly because of the yummy new papers from My Minds Eye (Lost & Found 2). The image is a freebie I picked up a loooong time ago from Michelle Perkett, and what little colouring there is, was done with Copic's. The rest as mentioned was paper pieced. Here's a close up of that and the 'popped' apple.............

The ticket on there is actually a rubber stamp, as is the sentiment.

I may be back later with some more challenge entries, so till then, enjoy your day

Hi Jayne! I find it difficult to incorporate one piece of dsp into a project nevermind three but you have shown us how to do it classically using neutrals and soft shading. Just lovely!
