#166 Paper piecing, Halloween style.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Good morning dear blog readers, Riet here.
Today my second contribution to the "Paper piecing" challenge.
I chose a Halloween theme.
The LCD stamp Frank is so much fun and definitely suitable for paper piecing.
Here is the explanation for this Halloween banner.
What I used:
Lost Coast Design, Frank.
Lost Coast Design, Spiderwebs background.
Lost Coast Designs, Rustic checkerboard border.
Carmens veranda, Witches go riding.

Stazon black,
Distressink Black soot,
Versafine onyx black.
Die with bats.
Markers or pencils.
Designpapers with a small print.
Black paper for the bats.
Orange paper for the bottom half.
Purple paper.

Now we strart.
I started with a basic cardboard in point shape.
For the top half I took an orange paper with a fine print.
And for the bottom an orange paper stamped with the spiderwebs background in stazon black.
I tore the top of the spiderwebs paper,
 and applied some Distressink black soot with an ink blending tool.
Now we glue the two halves on the white cardboard in point form.
Ad some Distressink black soot with an ink blending tool on the edges.

Now we stamp the Rustic checkerboard with the versfine.

With the versafine I stamped the text from Carmens Veranda On a purple die cut.
Ad some Distressink black soot with an ink blending tool on the edges.

First we stamp Frank on white paper with stazon black.
Color only his head.

Then we stamp Frank on three different design papers and cut out all parts.
We cut out the white frank in its entirety.
That is the base where all clothing pieces are glued on.

With a purple pencil I colored the details.
The pockets are done eith a small piec of paper.
I gave Frank gloves in the same paper as the shoes.
I stick the text and frank with some foam tape.
Glue the bats and glitter stars on the text label.

Make two holes and thread a piece of string through them.
So you can hang it.
I hope you liked it.
