Atlantic Hearts 372 - Paper Pieced Globe

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #372! 

The images on a sketch are there more to mark the location than to be used exactly (the car and road images on this sketch, for example). I used a globe image on my card. 

I have done paper piecing before - but not like this! I can honestly say that I won't attempt this again. The piecing of the locations in the globe took me well over 2 hours to complete. To put it in perspective, the globe circle is approx. 1.75 " across so that gives you an idea of the size of some of those pieces! However, I love the way it turned out. 

Two stitched rectangle frames were cut and the smaller one was placed under the edge of the larger one. I stamped a few clouds (some are on the inside of the card), coloured them with a light grey marker to add some dimension and placed them under and over the sentiment. The sentiment was mounted with thin foam tape as was the globe. Finally I added a few green enamel dots. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.

  1. Alyson, this is a gorgeous card and you did a fab job on it. I hear you completely about those lil bits. I bought an MFT quilt die that I'm dying to use but all the bits I'll have to put back in are scaring me away from it! At least I learned to think about that when salivating over another die like that to buy but I might forget! LOL. XOX

  2. Wonderful card!
