Bacon Love?



I've got a bold, paper-pieced creation for the Just Us Girls Wild Card Week Challenge to use a sentiment as the focal point of our card.  I stamped the Sweet Stamp Shop sentiment onto Studio Calico paper and then paper-pieced each part of the banner and letters with different papers from the same collection.  I thought it was really fun and bright and was proud of myself for dipping my toe outside of my CAS comfort zone.  Then a co-worker said it looked like bacon.  And now all I see is bacon.  LOL!  That might have been cool a year ago but apparently the hipsters have declared that bacon and kale are out.  *Sigh*  I'm always late to the trends...




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Snippets 6x6) Studio Calico
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Chalkboard Sign) Sweet Stamp Shop
Ink: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Gems:  Recollections

Jen, this is so great and a total eyecatcher. Perfect for a challenge where it's all about the sentiment.

Paper piecing is not my thing to do but yours came out great. I don't really see bacon, just a well done, brightly colored card.

But at least it's bacon amazing! Fun with great colours. Since from your title I was expecting bacon, I don't know if I would have thought it otherwise. I haven't paper-pieced in so long...
