Paper Pieced Ark of Animals

I decided to use the Noah's Ark stamp from Jane's Doodles and make the ark full of animals entirely paper pieced!!
OK...OK...I know....a bit crazy...but what fun and seeing as I am really NOT  a colorer...this was making the animals come to life with the use of scissor instead of a marker!  I stamped SECTIONS in the different colors...the roof twice with Cherrry Cobbler, the elephant twice with dark gray, the lion...light and dark yellow and used the brown from the monkey for the lion's nose...the giraffe the same colors as the lion and monkey...the ark was soft suede...not the same brown as the monkey...basically dark and light of gray, brown, yellow and blue with one red. I didn't have a die or punch for the waves, so used  the same blues as the bird, with the Papertrey Ink large scallop die using the remainder of the de-scalloped side of the paper when it is die cut(reverse, negative...not sure what you call it:)!!) The sentiment is the one that came with the stamp....fun...fun...fun!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  15. Ah, Lisa, Lisa. Girl, seriously, you rock this card stuff! I should leave a comment on each post, but I'm too lazy. I've scrolled down to what I've missed while I've been away and each card is as impressive as the one before, if not more so. You take my breath away.
