Paper piecing experiment


We have a new challenge today at A Gem of a Challenge which is to use mainly yellow. I have used one of the newer images, Chloe with dandelion and paper pieced her dress, boots, and bow. No that isn't my experiment, read on below the next picture.  The sentiment is from LOTV and I added some glitter washi tape. After I had coloured her I decided she looked like she is sitting and remembered I have a Marianne bench die. Of course I should have realised this before I made up the card so had to cut out bits of the bench and attach it around her, what a job. 


So this is my experiment, using Copics on paper piecing, a challenge Faye has set us in the Copic group on Facebook. It is the first time I have tried it and although I used yellow Copics they seem to look orange.  I am amazed at the difference and with a bit of practice it does add shading to the flat paper so will be trying it again.

Wow! Great dimensions with the paper piecing coloured with markers and the "splitted" bench works well. :) Love the paper used and the design
