Viv would like to see something paper pieced on your project. You could, for example, paper piece a flower, part of your image such as a character's clothing, you could even paper piece an animal image for a funky look, one of the team has even paper pieced her background.. I am sure you can think of other ideas! 

Please ensure that your creation has paper piecing on it in order to qualify for the winner or top 5 slot.

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE RULES BEFORE ADDING YOUR CREATION AND CHECK IT MEETS THE CRITERIA AS LAID OUT ABOVE - ANY ENTRY NOT COMPLYING WILL UNFORTUNATELY BE REMOVED

Here is how the team interpreted the challenge:-

 Viv
 
I used Krista's lovely Christmas Nutcracker image - and paper pieced her dress and hair ribbons using Raspberry Road's Merry Christmas papers.

Jackie
I used this charming stamp from our sponsors, Woodware and paper pieced his body using some Christmas papers left in my stash from last year.  The reindeer was stamped onto kraft card as was the base card used.

Cindy

An 8 x 8 card using a Clarity stamped image paper pieced with Theresa Collins papers.

Yvonne
A card made paper piecing small left over papers and a Woodware stamped  image.

Fiona
For my card I have used a LOTV stamp coloured with ProMarkers. I have used We R Memory Keepers "Vintage T" papers to paper piece the "DAD" and also his little tie. My other papers are from the DCWV "Boyhood" stack.

Julie
My image is 'Ava' by Saturated Canary and I have used papers from a Papermania DVD to Paper Piece her, I have used Copics and Promarkers for the hair, skin & shoes.

Carole
I have used "Ruffles the Clown" from out sponsor, Saturated Canary. The papers are mostly Brenda Pinnick. I have coloured her hair and face with Promarkers.

Marie
Paper Piecing is not something that I do a lot. For this card had I actually prepared the sweater for the soccer player, but when I went through my dies I found a patch work die from Joanna Sheen, and the brilliant idea of making a soccer ball came to mind instead. So my whole back ground is lots of tiny pieces of  left over card stock made into a soccer ball. Image is from the Paper Shelter. I actually love how this card turned out as it is different from what I normally do.

I've had this Prima Doll stamp for a while now and have been itching to get my fingers on her, but I have been too busy elsewhere. Anyhow, she was just crying out to be paper pieced!
 
Do you want to make this card? - You must have a lace, some pеarls, dies - from spellbinder, memory box and joy, designer paper, spectrum noir markers and the gorgeous image "Violet Vintage" from our sponsor Saturated Canary.
 
This stamp was free with a magazine.  I paper pieced her dress and coloured the rest of her with Promarkers. I added glossy accents to her posy of flowers and Stickles to the frill of her dress. Frames cut with Stampin Up Framelits.  No 4 and butterflies also cut with Stampin Up dies, using SU glitter card.
 
I have paper-pieced a hedgehog using the Docrafts Woodland Friends die, cutting the parts out from different coloured paper and then layering them up to make the cute little creature. The background was made by running a Darice embossing folder through my Big Shot and then inking over with Walnut Stain distress ink.
