Paper Piecing

Paper piecing is a great little technique and oh so easy with our downloads. Simply print transparent images onto patterned paper to "dress them up". This was the challenge Adele set on Dottie's World today: to use a Charmed download along with the paper piecing technique.

I love pregnant mummy Martian from our newest collection and used her here, along with the Baby on Board sentiment also in the bundle. There are three in the bundle, pink, blue and white, I used the white one here and coloured it green with my Copics.

I used Basic Grey and Tim Holtz Papers (from the Shabby Vintage pad), and the Martha Stewart Heart deep edge punch. That gorgeous bouquet is Prima.

I pleated the paper behind the main image, you can see that better at the very top in this close-up, you can also see that I used gold dust on a few areas of Mummy Martian:

I coloured in Mummy Martian with my Copic markers. I decided to add a black faux stitching border in case you notice something different in this one LOL

Please pop over and check out the work from the other girls. We really have a great team on Dottie's World :-) Thanks for visiting x
