This fortnight at The Male Room we have a paper piecing challenge.
I have come across a few different ways of doing paper piecing over the last few years and thought I would do something a little different with my card this week.
I have used this gorgeous Butterfly Die, and cut four different butterflies in four colours, firstly with the black as my outline, and then one in each of the different shades of green and blue. Instead of using the shape of the butterfly, I have used the small pieces that have been cut from inside the die shape and stuck them into the spaces of my black butterfly, creating the colourful butterfly.
It was a little time consuming, but worth it in the end.
I hope you will share your projects with us at The Male Room.
