2016 #13 Delft Tiles {by Liesbeth Fidder}

 2016 Topic 13: Paper Piecing

Hi everyone, Liesbeth here.

Tonight I'd like to share with you this evening with a post about Paper piecing !

First thing I was thinking about when I heard the words ,Paper piecing' was a beautiful big fabric quilt. Second thing in my mind was (very Dutch ;-) ) Delft blue kitchen tiles. The Lynne Perrella stamps are so very perfect for this ! So I have chosen the tiles, wanted to create Delft blue antique tiles !

You need to know : the moment I start a project, I never have a plan in mind,never, I just start ... That's the reason I made far to much painted and crackled paper. Just one A4 piece is enough for this project.

Step One: I covered a (one is really enough) piece of Smoothy Stamping card A4 with a layer of Fresco Finish : Southern skies and after drying with a thin layer of Crackle Glaze.

Step Two: As soon as I dried the Crackle Glaze , I covered it with a layer of Fresco paint Chalk. You can find everything about Crackle Glaze and ,how to' in Leandra's video HERE !

Step Three: After drying the crackles, I punched 1 inch squares and stamped them by inking the stamp  with Archival Cobalt and putting the little paper square onto the stamp as shown. I made 4 different tiles, 10 times each. 

I used the following LPC stamps: LPC028,

and LPC014 for this.

Step Four: Onto the left over ckrackled piece I stamped the ,tea cup woman' from LPC014 using StazOn ink Jet Black and I cut her out (without the background, just the woman)

Step Five: I coloured the pieces using  a waterbrush and Fresco paint  Coral (the perfect skin colour !) and Southern Skies

Step six: I sponged the edges of the tiles with black ink to let them pop out..

Step seven: I glued the tiles tight onto a piece of off-white cardstock and a blue card. Using some foam tape, I finished the card by adding the woman.

A tiny ,left-over' card !

Well, I hope you like this technique and give it a trie yourself ! Of course you are free to choos other colours or other parts of Lynne Perrelle stamps , there all very good for this style! Have fun  creating your own paper pieced Delft Blue !

Wow Liesbeth, you always seems to weave wonderful magic with Lynne Perrella Stamps, the tiled background idea is fantastic and the idea to borrow from Delft China is perfect!! Thanks so much for sharing! ~Gillian
