Polkadoodles - Paper Piecing Tutorial! with Winnie Winter Wishes!!

Hello my dear friends,  I'm here today with My Design Team
card and a tutorial for you on how to paper-piece part of an image for


I used to love using this technique on certain parts of my image
and its a great way to incorporate the colour of your
papers onto an image.

I chose to stamp up one of the new Winter Winnie Wishes polymer stamps. 
This one is called Heartfelt Wishes 

  I then  choose my papers I'll be using on my card and I chose
to use the cute Wintertime 6x6 paper pack.  Then I choose
 which paper I want to use to paper piece.

Once you've stamped the part of the image you want to use
 cut out a larger section, this makes it easer to fussy cut around
the intricate areas, rememeber to keep the stamped ink lines on
your paper piece otherwise it wont fit properly onto your stamped image.

Next stage is to adhere your paper piece to the stamped image.

 Once you've paper pieced the image you can then go on to colour
it or do the reverse  and colour it first and then paper piece 
the section required.  I only paper pieced Winnie's coat but you 
could paper piece her hat, scaft, shoes and gloves if you wanted.

I also used a few of the fabulous Polydoodle Basic Tag dies, 
leaves from the Delicate Daisy dies  and a couple of candy canes and a star
 from the Lazer cut Jumbles to complete my card.

Thank you so much for taking the time to pop in and visit,
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and that you'll give
this technique a try.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
