Paper Piecing and Boiled Paper

Morning and I have three DT posts today the 2nd one for the new ATG challenge at Love To Scrap and we are sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays and I was sent the Mon Ami stamp set which contains 10 individual stamps.
I decided to paper piece the stamps using scraps on my desk which got ripped up and almost thrown away last week but changed my mind and it involved masking too ooh get me lol.My favourite texture stamp round the edges and the little Bee from Chocolate Baroque.
I stamped everything onto one of the boiled pages I made here distressed the edges and backed onto black card.

Lovely bit of paper piecing, Carol. They're pretty stamps. That border stamp gets a lot of use - not bad for a freebie, lol.

Boiled paper? Never heard of, I’ll have to look that up later on, too curious to let it pass... what an amazing artsy design, you used the colors of or photo inspiration at ink beautifully.
