Paper Piercing

Tilda is paper pierced today!  I have been seeing a lot of this technique on different blogs and really like it so I thought I would join in.  I stamped and colored my image with Copic markers then re-stamped the image on patterened paper, cut out the dress, and attached it to the original image.  Voila'!
Isn't she perty?  lol.  I pulled out my flowers that I purchased from Wild Orchard Crafts, some lace trim, some pretty pink ribbon, and a sweet corsage pin to add to my card.  I love how my background paper coordinates so well with her dress pattern even though they are not from the same company.  Mixy Matchy was the way to go!  I had fun making my card and wanted to share it with you.  Enjoy!  Love, Elle

She's a real delight! The beautiful colors and patterns are wonderful. Paper piecing is so much fun, like cutting out paper doll clothes without the little tabs. :)
