You're Not Old... Paper Pieced Bathing Beauty

I adore this new stamp set, Bathing Beauties, from A Muse Studio. It's great paper-pieced or colored or stamped as a background. And, the sentiments are not only cute, the font is super cute!! This version is paper-pieced. Isn't it great?!

Tip of the day: Did you know that once you cut out your image on whatever color or print you chose for paper piecing it, you take a black marker (I use the black tombow and it's great for this!) and you go along the edge of the cut-out piece. Then, when you layer it on the image, you don't get an awkward white or cream edge that makes it stand out and look paper-pieced. Heather taught me that years ago and it was such a great tip, I had to share it. :)

Have a wonderfully creative day!!
