It's the 15th which means another fun and fabby challenge coming to you from Copic Creations!
Since our next challenge (they are the 1st and 15th of every month) falls on a holiday... we'll be taking that one off and are giving you a WHOLE MONTH to complete this challenge. You have NO EXCUSES! You must play! ;)
For our challenge - we are asking that you paper piece! Yep, that doesnt sound very copic challenge-ish does it? Well, there is a often forgetten thing when people paper piece. In order for the over all image to have that depth you need to shade your paper piecing! So thats the challenge!
Here's my card...
Before i get into card details... i need to tell you about our sponsor for the challenge!
Her name is Kellie Winnell and she's the owner of Tickled Pink Stamps in Australia.
This gal is too fun! She first opened her online shop down under because stamps like magnolia's, etc were hard to come by. Then she thought... well i want to start my own company too and the Lil Lolita stamp line was born! She sells her stamps both digi and in rubber so there is something for everyone! AND... RIGHT NOW... Tickled Pink Stamps is have a PRE-Christmas SALE! With 10% - 35% OFF some selected stamps, a discount of paper pads, charms and well EVERYTHING in store! So be sure to get that something you have always wanted before it's all GONE....
You really have to check them out!
The image i used is from the christmas cllection that was JUST released. You can view them all HERE.
First I printed the digi out onto xpress it cardstock, and then printed the digi again on 2 different patterned papers (it's just as easy to run patterned paper thru your printer as it is the cardstock! THen i cut out my pieces and paper pieces away. I will note, it is easiest to me if you color the rest of your image you arent paperpiecing before you add the paper on top other wise you kind hit the walls of the paper and that colorless blender just doesnt work as well to get the ink back where it's supposed to on top of the patterned paper.
Once you are at this step, you shade your paper pieced imaged much like you would shade a regular image. You can use a color if you have one that matches the paper... i chose greys instead to create more shadows (N2, N4 and N6 to be exact)
When i was done with my image, i added liquid applique to her hat and dress for that extra santa effect.
Now go check out the copic creations blog to see more samples and then go buy some goodies from Kellie!
Have a wonderful day!!!!
