Copic Colouring & Paper Piecing

Today's "Copic Card"

I really enjoyed making this card.  It took FOREVER, but it turned out really nice.  I stamped this LA LA Lands stamp and then coloured her with copic markers.  Copic colouring is tricky and the more you do it, the better the paper you use, the better you will colour.  I wanted to add some colour to her so I used some papers from Kaiser Craft and stamped her again onto some of the papers for her hair band, shirt, shoes, and skirt.

When paper piecing I find it hard to get the shadows right on, but it seemed to work on this image well for me.  I used some W1-W0 copic markers to add some shadows to her shirt, skirt, shoes, and hair band.  I did a bit of sewing on this card and layering.  I added some fibre ribbon around to have something for her to sit on!  I also added a couple of layered flowers/brad to add to pop to this card. Lastly I used this sentiment "Sending you happiness" and then layered it up with a black mat.

This card took several hours to complete.  The paper piecing and colouring of the image took several image but I really like how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!
