More Paper Piecing with The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Stamps!

Still obsessed with paper piecing I really love the look of it!
and its super fun to do while watching tv...or a movie....or...like let's say while your watching Iron Man!

I specifically bought some 6x6 paper pads for this purpose, they are the perfect size for paper piecing and there is very little waste. No guilt cutting up a 12x12!

For this grouping I used:

Paper: Pink Paislee Sweetness
Nestibilities: Small Oval, Small Scalloped Oval
Baby Roses: iamroses
Stamps: The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya Dressy & Miss Anya Love

I heart making these!, Sorry for the dark pics, these were taken late at night with my phone LOL!
The one above is my favorite one, I love the colors, she is definitely ready for the Kentucky Derby with her cute cute hat.


Thanks for stoppin' by,

Color Inspiration: Iron Man

I am completely obsessed with Iron Man...

I don't watch a lot of movies or TV (EXCEPT for Gray's Anatomy & Project Runway).
One night hubby was was watching Iron Man...I watched and HELLO I'm hooked, totally hooked...

I got this CUTE little action figure, the helmet flips up to reveal the face of Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.).

Its...adorable. 


I used the Gold/Red combo as color inspiration for this Greeting Farm stamp: Cheeky Rockabilly
I didn't have the black hair copic markers when I first got this stamp, but now that I do, it was super fun to see what I could do with the hair - Black Hair is my fave hair color!
Copic Markers: C9, C7, C5, C3



Thats all I got for now, hee hee, NOW back to watching Iron Man...

later dudes!
