The wrong trousers

Hmmm, so the wrong trousers! Just Magnolia have challenged us this week to do some paper piecing.

Magnolia image, paper and card scraps, copics

It was going so well until I got to the trousers! I thought I had some grey fine stripey paper and I can't find it, nor can I find any in my download collection so I went with spots. Ooops. I might look a bit harder and amend this! But not today as I'm far too tired and need to go and have 40 winks, my eyes are watering.

You can see I paper pieced all the spotty bits and then shaded the rest with Copics. All the bits of paper, including the scallop strip are scraps. The large spotty card is the backing card from the packaging of some Prima gems, that came in handy.



  1. Hiya Victoria hunny, this is gorgeous, I love the papers you used, and the striking colours really suit these images. Great card.

  2. Hi Victoria, I'm kinda liking the spotty trousers, this lil man could be a real trend setter lol! Gorgeous colours on this card and such fab paper piecing , hope you had a good rest hun :) Donna x
