The Pixie Cottage Challenge-sketch and/or paper piecing



It's Wednesday and that means its time for another The Pixie Cottage challenge and this week we use one of my fave techniques- paper piecing! We also have a great sketch for inspiration.. you can use the sketch and/or the paper piecing! You can't see it very well, but the bench part of my image is pieced with Basic Grey paper from the Pyrus collection. I sat Tilda on the Window Seat image. LOVE that image.. so versatile.

Challenges:
Crazy Challenge- just add flowers
Papertake Weekly- anything goes
Craft Your Passion- anything goes

Details:
Bazzil card stock base and layer
Basic Grey Capella papers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Colored with copics and spica pens

Oh,that kitty in the window looks exactly like mine! My spoiled baby is tall and skinny with big ears, and he spends most of his waking time sitting at the front window all regal like, surveying the neighbourhood. I will have to get this image!!
Love what you've done with it, combining it with Tilda, the scene is very sweet.
HAve a lovely weekend and hope you are doing well, Carla!
