Hi all, hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was a very crafty one, managed to find my mojo after a bit of a dry spell and started and finished 3 cards! It meant I was up till 3am 2 nights running, but great to get stuck into something creative again.
This is one of my makes......Fluffles is doing the Tilda challenge on Docrafts this week and she chose paper-piecing as the theme. Well, this is one of my favourite techniques, not least because it gets me out of colouring what for me is the most difficult part of the image. The challenge over on Copic Creations is also for paper-piecing, with the addition of shading on the cut paper.
I adore this Tilda image, but it's not the easiest to paper-piece, as I found out. The coat and gloves are cut from the pale cream backing paper (there's big hole in the middle under the mat where I stamped the coat for cutting out), and I used W1, W3 and W5 copics to add shading to the clothes. Shading onto patterned paper was very much a new thing to me, and I fiddled around with it so much that you can't really see the pattern on the paper any more. Nevermind, it was fun to make and I'm definitely going to try this again. Hope you like it.
