I pulled A LOT of my hair out last night (which I will most likely send to my good buddy, Carole, who just "has a thing" for loose hair!) trying to figure this out.
With new computers comes new software, new struggles....but....I *think* I prevailed.
Anyway, I needed a break and I was in the mood to create a fun spring card and grabbed one of my favorite My Favorite Things stamps called Can Ya Dig It?
I stamped the images on some Perfect Paper Panels and I colored part of the image with Copics and then paper pieced her dress, hat, flowers. Tip: To add some dimension to your pieced image....use your marker to add some shading where natural shadows would fall.
I cut out the pot and lady to pop them up. The background was created by sponging clouds and I cut a strip of designer paper for the grass (my favorite easy way to add grass!) You can see all the places on her dress and hat where I went over the designer paper with Copic markers. Just use a slightly darker color when coloring so it shows up. You can test it on scrap paper to see if it will work with the color of the dp.
