The latest Copic Creations Challenge involves using Copics to add shaded areas to paper-pieced stamped images. Tickled Pink Stamps is offering a $15 gift certificate to one randomly selected entry. Find out more about the challenge here.
[I've found that this card also seems to meet the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge to create a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. Find their challenge here. A Basic Grey Jovial Card Kit is their prize for this challenge.]
I've stamped Secret Tilda from the 2010 Magnolia Merry Little Christmas Collection three times: once on Bazzill Smooth White, then on each side of My Minds Eye Penny Lane Tiny Dancer Pirouette.
I used Copic marker colors to fill the skin, blonde hair and gift areas of my Magnolia Secret Tilda image. Then I hand cut clothing pieces from the patterned papers to adhere to the image stamped on white paper.
I used a wet glue pen to adhere my paper pieces so I could glide them into place and ensure they line up properly. Here's how Tilda looks before shading . . .
Then I used medium shades of coordinating colors to provide some shaded areas to the paper pieces. Here's how Tilda looks after the shading . . .
Here's the completed card that shows how I've used Copic marker colors to provide shaded areas to a paper-pieced stamped image and created a Christmas card using non-traditional colors . . .
It's been a long time since I've used this technique of paper-piecing on stamped images. While cutting these clothing pieces, I found myself having flashbacks of my early childhood when I used to trace paper doll clothes onto other papers so I could cut them out and have a larger assortment of tabbed paper clothing pieces to dress my paper dolls. If my older brothers could have seen me, intently and purposefully cutting out these little clothing pieces, they would surely have continued their debate on whether or not I ever really grew up - LOL!!!
