Hello Life Postcard

I used three different stamps on this card:

Pigtails is from Stampotique
Postage Stamp is from Tim Holtz
Hello Life is from Close to My Heart

The postcard is distressed with red ink and embellished with glitter.

TOP TIP - Paper piecing is a fun technique. You can add fun accents, color or patterns to your design using paper piecing.

I am entering this postcard in the following challenges:

Stampotique - #144 postcard
Mod Squad (5) - gingham
Top Tip Tuesday - paper piecing + tip
Simon Says Monday - big stamp
Pile it On - #17 rubber stamp

♥ Wendy

Beautiful card you made, I do like the stamp, did you stampit directly on the card and just added the colored head later?
Hugs, Elenor

Love your picnic tablecloth background, Wendy! Just sets a festive stage for Pigtails. Thanks for participating in the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!

Hi Elenor,
Yes, that is exactly what I did. I stamped onto the gingham background and then stamped the face and feet onto white cardstock. I colored the face and feet with pencils, cut them out and put them on over the stamped design. It is a technique called paper piecing. It was a lot of fun! Thanks for the compliment!
