Technique Squad Blog Hop – Paper Piecing

Today’s theme for the Technique Squad Blog Hop is Paper Piecing. I haven’t done this in a while because, frankly, I don’t like to fussy cut but I really like how this turned out. It’s a bonus that I like it because this is the only current stamp set I have that I could see working with paper piecing.

I started by stamping the woman on a piece of white cardstock, then I stamped on a post-it note and cut it out to create a mask. (You may not want to include the empty part of the wine glass on the mask, ask me how I know.) Using the blending brushes, I colored the background in Balmy Blue, Pool Party, and Night of Navy. (I wish I’d picked out my background paper before inking so I could match it but my idea was that far along when I started.)

Her arms are colored with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend and the wine with light Pale Papaya (the top is with light Balmy Blue and this is why you don’t want to include it in your mask).

For the hat and dress, I stamped the image on a piece of patterned paper, fussy cut the hat and dress, then used liquid glue to add them to my colored image.
