La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #32

If you're looking for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #13, it's the post directly below this one. Thanks!

It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by Kristine and is paper piecing. I *love* paper piecing so this challenge was right up my alley! Here's my card:

I used Lotus this week and a sketch from Our Creative Corner.

I pieced Lotus' dress and sweater and you may be able to see it a tiny bit better in this close shot (you can also click to enlarge):

In case you didn't think of it, don't forget that you can color right on your patterned paper! Instead of piecing the belt with dark purple paper, I just colored right over the PP with a dark purple Copic. You can't see the pattern through the marker, but even if you did, it would still look great! I also did some shading with a light purple Copic on the dress, and with a light aqua Copic on her sweater. I hope you like it!

Before I go, I want to let you know that whatever image the hostess uses on her project is 20% off for the week of the challenge, and this week it's Rosie with Bird! And since we have a new requirement that you must use a La-La Land Crafts image on your projects, don't forget that we have all these fabulous new digi images available now!

We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
