Paper Pieced Princess

Something new for me this week for my DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration, paper piecing!!

So I think I may have tried this once a long time ago and it was a bit of a hot mess, so I took my time with this one and admit to needing a little guidance from my teamies.

Anyway here she is Serenity Princess from one of my favourite collections Serenity Fairy Wishes.

I started by printing some of the lovely papers from Winnie Special Moments, then printed my little princess on top. I am not much of a hand cutter, but think I did ok cutting out all the elements I need for my card.

I found some plain card for her hair and again printed the image and cut.

Once all was cut out, I coloured her skin with Copics and glued all my layers together.

I used Distress Oxide inks and gold spritz to decorate the photo mount from inside a frame and then stamped and embossed using Polkadoodles Summertime STAMP ME stamps.

Finishing off with some gems and resin flowers.  I really enjoyed doing something outside my comfort zone, I may even do it again!!

You can find all things Polkadoodles with the following links:-
