Paper Piecing at Phindy's Place

This week's challenge on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog is Paper Piecing. I never think of paper piecing without thinking of Katie Boshart. I remember the cards she turned out doing paper piecing, cutting her stuff out while holding a wee baby.  I have a hard enough time cutting with both hands free and just holding the scissors and image. I do however love the look of paper piecing, so thanks DT.

For my first card for the challenge, I chose this image from the Phindy's Place Store called Unwrapped. The only thing that's colored is his hands, feet, head and belly. The rest is all paper pieced. I even had fun tearing up the wrapping paper for him to toss.

The papers are from a kit from Raspberry Road Designs called Big Boy Design. I decided that train paper was just too perfect for his pajamas.  The sketch is this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches.

The senitment was created in Photoshop, and you're welcome to it.
