Crafty Cardmakers #104 Paper Piecing

This Fortnights challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Viv, who has chosen the theme 'Paper Piecing'

Viv would like to see something paper pieced on your project. You could, for example, paper piece a flower, part of your image such as a character's clothing, you could even paper piece an animal image for a funky look.. I am sure you can think of other ideas!

For my project i used an image by one of our sponsors Saturated Canary called 'Ava'.

I have paper pieced her dress and the balloon with some papers I printed from a Papermania CD.

I am really pleased with how she turned out, although I was so focused on the paper piecing I didn't think to colour her before hand and so some spots were a little tricky as there was clear glue there, that I couldn't colour over.

I used Copics for her hair and pro markers for the skin, boots, trousers and bow.

The flowers and leaves are a recent purchase from ebay and the dies are all Spellbinders.
