Polkadoodle Challenge 49 - Paper Piecing and Newspaper

It's time for a new Polkadoodles challenge and the theme this week is:

Paper Piecing and Newspaper

I've used the Studio 12 vol 1 Picknix Collection and selected the All Sewn Up collection on the cd, paper pieced the mannequin and then inked it once all cut out.  All the elements that you see with exception to the half pearls and newspaper (more about that later!) are from the cd and I've just added a bit of inking and some faux stitching!

The newspaper is not actually newspaper as I didn't have any - its part of an old car magazine from 1935!!

Good luck with the challenge!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Moments:  Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafty:  Anything Goes
Craft Room Challenge: Ohh La La
Ooh La La:  Spots and Dots
The Pink Elephant:  Make It Girly

All paperbased items:  Polkadoodles
Newspaper:  My stash
Everything else:  My stash
