Hello, it's time for a little mid-week inspiration for From The Heart Stamps.
Following on from our blog hop, I thought i'd use another Project 100 Snowmen image.
This time, i'm using our newest snowy guy, Flurry...

I decided to do something different with Flurry, I've paper pieced him using papers from Carta Bella 'Winter Fun' collection. I bought these papers as digital ones, so they are great to resize to make the pattern fit beneath this transparent format of Flurry.
Faith gives you 3 formats for her images in each purchase, a JPG, a transparent PNG, and a  white-filled PNG. She explains the differences HERE.
I opened up the papers i'd decided to use into my paint program, along with the transparent PNG version of Flurry. I used the image over top of the papers and cropped around the sections I'd need for each piece. After printing these out I cut out each piece, run a black marker along the edges then pieced it together onto my card base.
I finished by adding clear Wink of Stella over the snow, heart, nose and Flurry himself parts, just leaving the scarf and text paper without, and though you can't see this in my photo, in real life the extra shimmer it adds looks lovely.
