ABC Challenge - P is for Paper Piecing Using the Pollycraft Friday Freebie...

Hi everyone!!

I can't quite believe I'm doing 2 posts in a day lol!!

Anyway... here is a card I have made for the ABC Challenge which is P for Paper Piecing using the gorgeous Pollycraft Friday Freebie this week...

I have flipped the image in my graphics programme so that the message went into the image rather than going away if you get what I mean...

I thought I'd also just do a few little tips for digi paper piecing...
I printed my image out so it printed on the bottom right of my printer (for me this means putting the image in the top left but all printers are different...) Then all you have to do is select the paper you'd like to use and then print on them!! I chose some beautiful Basic Grey papers...

Now the flowery paper I only used on the saddle... but don't worry... you can hide the rest of the image as a mat under your main image!!

So there you go... sorry if I've taught your Grandmother to such eggs ha ha ha!!

Love Becky xx
