Paper Piecing/Piercing!!!!

Happy Bank Holiday Monday
and that means it's a new challenge from

Challenge Blog Badge
This weeks theme is
 Paper Piecing/ Piercing
The sponsor this week is
the somewhat cute somewhat quirky Q K R Stampede rubber stamp company Rubber Stamps, Gold Leaf, Foil, and Glass Beads for Stampin, Scrapbooks, Card Making, and Paper Crafts

This is my card using  Little boy image.
So what did I do,
 I used a Stampin Up embossing folder for the
hexagon background
 onto core'dination card and sanded it down to give it the distressed look.
I also did the embossing on the spare jumper and jeans paper to get the shape of the hexagons for inside the shapes.
I paper pieced his jumper, hair,catapult and jeans and added shading and colour to the rest of the image with Promarkers.
I used my brushes and ink for the background of the image and paper pierced all the way round.
I finished off by adding assorted buttons
then mounted it onto a light Kraft card.

Thanks for calling by,
 please let me know you ave visited.
