Paper piecing

Saturated Canary have paper piecing as a challenge this week. I've never tried this technique before, but it was quite fun. Used the "Hatress" image and paper pieced most of her dress using design papers from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland collection. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima and Petaloo. The metallic flowers are dyed using a mixture of Arabic gum, pigments from Luminarte and Distress Ink refills. Key hole and chipboard from G45, metallic leaves from Prima mechanicals and ribbon from RRR. Distressed edges of the papers and inked with Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs. Colored with Copic markers. Used this week's sketch from Sketchy colors.
