Paper Pieced Sweetheart
Hi! This is Sweeheart Marci, from the latest Valentine Collection. Every time I sit down to color up this adorable Marci I remember my daughters when they were small and wore their hair in pigtails just like this, giggling and making homemade valentines. I really enjoy these cute Marci stamps and this is definately one of my faves. I decided to paper piece her dress to match the background paper. And her buttons are tiny twinkles (small rhinestones). And then the pink ball-tipped pins kinda resemble the pony holders in her hair and add a fun element to the card. I always dip the ends of pins in crystal effects and hold it til it dries and creates a protective ball on the ends so nobody gets poked ;)
That's all for today! You can see more like this on my personal blog, Ink Something 2!
