Papertrey Princess Challenge 1 - Paper Piecing
Diane challenged us to paper piece. I decided to pull out a MFT set since I haven't given these any love for awhile -- and these are great to piece. Ok... really, the story is I stamped her in Staz-on cos I'm out of graphite black and I can't find a re-inker for the life of me....everywhere I've looked online is sold out. So I had to paper piece her if I was going to use this image. Darn all your crafty ladies buying the reinker! ;-)
I paper pieced her dress, boots and the dog's little coat. Also stamped the umbrella in Versamark and added some clear embossing powder and "paper pieced" that sucker.
In addition, I thought it might be fun to add some fun poms on the bottom of her dress. I had these poms in my stash for awhile and I just haven't had a chance to use them ever but they keep taunting me. They finally won. I pop-dotted the dress so that the poms didn't stand out too much. I also added a little pom to the center of the flower cluster since it just seemed more fun. :-)
I did add a little coloring with colored pencil. Originally was going to pair it with the orange paper but eh, minds change... coloring can't. The puddle is also glossy accented.
