Coloured Paper Piecing

Hello friends.  Today I have a fun technique for you, it is coloured paper piecing.  You will notice this cute owl is wearing a dress, but did you notice I enhanced things by blending Prismacolor pencil crayons on the waste and under the collar.


Stamp with large open area

designer paper

Prismacolor pencil crayons

blending stump

odorless mineral spirits

Stamp out your image twice–once on designer paper and once on white cardstock

Cut out stamped area (I just cut the dress out)

Colour areas that you want to darken, such as above and below the belt, and under the collar.

With a blending stump and odorless mineral spirits, blend your Prismacolor pencil crayons.

Have fun!

Stamp:  Hero Arts

Designer Paper:  BasicGrey
