Oh boy I am having way to much fun with my Kraft Cardstock Today I wanted to play with paperpiecing as I don’t do that very often. I picked Pink Gem Designs Butterfly chloe for my paperpiecing project you can find her here. And at this moment you can get her for just 1.35 Uk pounds. A great bargain as she is soo awesome to colour or paperpiece hahahhaaha Here is my complete card and I made a LARGE photo tutorial about how I did my image. I used the sketch from Fetch a Sketch challenge. And I am playing the House of Gilli Challenge (sorry girls I don’t have an Gilli image to play with) with your favourite colour combo. I am drawn more and more to brown colours because of my KRAFT addiction
For Chloe’s skin I used Spectrum Noir FS8 and FS6 and Cheeks are done with PP2. Because I work on Kraft the colours tone down alot. But I like her skin this way. For her hair I started with TN3 and coloured the whole hairpart.
For the lace pieces on her dress I used Prismacolor pencil PC1085 Peach Beige. Just colour and then use a paperstumb and Sansodor or any other odorless mineral spirit. We go further with her hair and you colour part at the roots with TN5.
Then do the same only smaller parts with EB3.
Go over the whole hairpart again with TN3 and blend all the colours nicely together.
Colour her shoes with EB6. You can add shades later with a dark brown Prismacolor pencil,
With a white Prismacolor pencils I draw some clouds behind her and you colour those totally with white and then use the paperstumb and sansodor again to make it looks smoothly.
Then colour the sky with a soft blue tone prismacolor pencil and use sansodor.
I made some grass with different colours of green prismacolor pencils. And I coloured the little doggie in Warm Grey Spectrum Noir colours. BG3-BG4-BG5-BG6.
Because I wanted to paperpiece this image I had to also print her on some designer papers. And I used a 6×6 sheet from a Papermania paperpad. Not all printers will allow you to add weird formats of paper so to make sure you can do this at the 6×6 sheet to a normal papersheet with a bit of scotch magic tape and run it thru your printer. Then look at which parts that you want to paperpiece. For this one I picked the 2 bows , the dress, and the socks.
Here you see them laying on the coloured image.
When they fit perfectly you can glue them with any type of glue that you like to work with. As I wanted the butterflies to stand out a little I coloured those with a softer brown Prismacolor pencil.
And then My signature look I always add 3spots to the cheeks of my characters I can’t help it I like it to much and If I don’t I always find that the image is missing something ;)
Well I hope you like my way of paperpiecing and colouring
