Slimeline card using scraps

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media.

Of late I am addicted to making slimline cards and I am back here with another one using scraps I had and tried a technique which I suppose is quiet old called paper piecing. From this technique we can get a lot from scraps we have left over. 
For my card I used Fairlytale homes - house tea pot and Little darling Frog princess. I created a small scene here using three images and scroll down to see the close up to see how I used the scrap pieces. 

I have two grass layers here. The bottom most layer I used a scrap white cardstock I had which I earlier used for ink masking. I just inked it u with two shades of green. 
For the next layer, I used scrap pattern paper and inked the edges with dark green ink. 
For the sky, I used an old strip of pattern paper I had which compliments the scene created here. 

For the prince and princess I did the same. First, I stamped the images on white card stock. I coloured the skin, hair, frog, the prince's armor, cape and sword. 
I stamped the same images on scrap pattern paper and did fuzzy cutting. Generally I will leave a little gap around the image but this time I did a very close fuzzy cutting. 

I added pattern paper to the princess dress, where I used two different designs. 
For the prince, I used pattern paper for the shield, his shoes and the thing on his helmet

For the tea pot, I directly stamped it onto a pattern paper. This is a double sided pattern paper and this side has almost plain design. I added highlights using colour pencils and fortunately the side I chose has design that makes it look old and goes with the scene. 
I added all the pieces together to create the scene and finished with stamping a sentiment.
