I stamped the image first on a piece of whisper white cardstock and then again on a piece of basic grey so I could cut out the mailbox and piece it on top of the original image. Not sure why I'm so into paper piecing lately :o) but I really like how it just made this "pop". I decided to just keep it to two colors this time - Tempting Turquoise and Basic Grey. I used a piece of textured cardstock for the main layer on this card to provide just a hint of "touchability" and not compete with the pieced mailbox. This is a NEW stamp set called "For the Birds". I knew as soon as I saw it that I just had to have it. It has lots of versatility for occassions and seasons. I'm sure you will be seeing more of it from me in the future. The white and grey DSP is Twitterpated and the striped grey is from the neutrals collection of the Designer Patterns Paper Stack (getting lots of use out of those stacks lately!).
Here is a closer look at my paper pieced mailbox:
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did and I hope I've inspired you in some way. Hugs!
