Paper Piecing Tutorial Willow Shopping

Today I am going to give you step by step directions on how to paper piece.


Cardstock: XpressIt

Copics: (see picture below)Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink

First I stamped Willow Shopping with black Memento ink.

I then chose my designer paper: Tickled Pink by My Mind's Eye.

I stamped the image again using Memento black ink on two different patterned papers.

Next I cut out just part of the image: in this case it was the shopping bags.

I glued the cut out shopping bags onto my original stamped image.

Repeat the above steps.

Then I decided I needed a third patterned paper. So I stamped the image once more.

Here you can see all three different patterns on the shopping bags.

I cut out the tissue paper sticking out of the shopping bas and applied glue.

I colored the rest of the image with copics.

After I am done coloring my image, I want to incorporate the remaining dp on my card.

I cut out the dp with an oval nestie to layer my focal image.

I add another piece of the dp for my background.

Here are the copics that I used to color my card.

I cut out a flower with more of the dp to add an embellishment.

Here is the final product.
