Japanese Tilda- Paper Piecing

Afternoon all. I must admit, I am a paper addict. Over the years, I have "collected" enough designer paper that will last a few generations. I am sure I am not the only one out there have this obsession, LOL.

I have made a card using some of my favorite DP. I used paper piecing technique for this Japanese Tilda image. I stamped Tilda dress on origami paper and paper pieced the kimono . I also stamped the paving stones on designer paper I got in Maui and cut out the individual stone pieces and added some clear crackle paint. The kimono sash and rose bouquet and Tilda's hand are paper pieced as well. I enjoy paper piecing, it reminds me of my childhood when we used to make paper dolls and design their outfits. Not sure if the younger generations know what I am talking about :o)

I used Basic Grey DP for the background, the little fan embellie, and the inside of the card. I colored Tilda with Copic markers. I distressed the paper with stitching, distressing tool, chalk ink, and distress ink.  Dies used here are from Magnolia Doohickey and Tim Holtz. 

Thanks very much for stopping by.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
