Be Still Hip Hop

 {check out my new blog celebration blog candy}

Hello my lovely friends!
How happy are you that it's Thursday???
One, because tomorrow is Friday and then it's Saturday, woot, woot!
and Two because it's Hip Hop!
and Three because I have a new home, what do ya think???
I hope you like it :)

I made 2 super simple cards for you today.
They both use my favorite technique, paper piecing.
I tried to color them...oh my...what a disaster, LOL!

Maybe I should show you....

Yeah, that's for real, HA!
I tried with colored pencils (I didn't even know I had!)
Copics, SU! inks and my blender pen
SU! ink and an aquapainter...
I used a paintbrush...
and went straight back to PAPER PIECING!
Nope, coloring is so not me!
still love me?

I did make 2 cards using my simple technique,

both of them using BE STILL

The paper I used is:
My Minds Eye - Hattie

Make sure to head yourself on over to Shemaine's blog next!
