Without You...

The challenge this week over at MFT Sketch Challenge and Chatter {MFTMFC5} is to use paper piecing on your project. This is one of my favorite techniques, and MFT images are so often so great for it. I used the Digital Girl set, and paper pieced her dress, chair cushion and desk. The rest I colored with COPICS. Take a look at my beautiful watermark. I got it from Karen Giron of The Sweetest Thing, who does beautiful work and who has a lovely selection of watermarks for sale. I love mine - got it in 2 colors. To take a look at Karen's selection of watermarks, Click HERE. She is incredibly gracious and helpful. I treated myself to Photoshop recently, and I have to say I am not getting the hang of it very easily. Karen has provided great support for her product and has gone out of her way to help me use it and to encourage me to persevere with my new friend/foe Photoshop. Thanks Karen! How do you like my watermark?? I can't say I am exactly sure what I did, but it looks great, don't ya think?

Hi Stephanie! This card is just darling! I love those MFT stamps and your card shows it off so beautifully!!

I'm doubly happy your watermark looks so fantastic! I agree, PS is very overwhelming to learn, but once you get the hang of it, you'll absolutely love it. Thanks for all of your sweet comments.

Love your work - I'll be back for more peeks!
