Paper-Piercing with a Die

Hello friends!
Love is Growing thin die from Penny Black is quite dandy!
I decided to try paper-piecing this die.
lots of love

I die cut 5 images with the green pattern paper and a few pink and peach-colored hearts (all from Basic Grey Paper). I then pieced them together on card stock. In order to make the images more "lively", I ink-splattered white acrylic paint in the background with the help of a small paint brush.  
lots of love
I added tiny hearts (also from the "Love is Growing" die).
I hope this inspires you to use pattern paper with your dies.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

What an amazing job of paper-piecing. So intricate and lovely. Great use for pattern papers, it adds interest and a bit of texture to the end product.
