"Pure Innocence" Digi-Image for Christmas Card Exchange

Greetings, CardMonkey fans.

I've been hard at work in the PaperJungle, catching up on commitments I've made for blog hops, card exchanges and guest designing. I do like these assignments, as a deadline forces me to focus. 

This sweet card I made for a Christmas Card "Anything Goes" Exchange.  I made six copies of the identical card. As the image above describes, I've used Copic markers to color a Heather Ellis "Pure Innocence" digi-image. This was the first time I did paper piecing (see the coat?) and I LOVE how it turned out. 

If you'd like a tutorial on this technique, leave me a comment, otherwise I will assume you know how to do this.  

Have you used digi-stamps or digi-images?

Here is a close-up of my Copic coloring ---->

Finally, I couldn't resist posting this picture (below) of my dear granddaughter, Charlotte. When I'm coloring "Pure Innocence" images, I think of Charlotte -- isn't she just the prettiest little girl?  And her spirit is so sweet and innocent ... she could be the model for these stamps, don't you think?

Cute! Your paper piecing is great. I love that it matches the strip of paper on the left, they balance each other well.

I think it's adorable!!! And the lil one is tooooo stinking cute. Just wanna kiss them lil cheekers. Love, love, love the grandbaby.

I do not know paper piecing technique, but I'm assuming you made a copy of the digi and cut out the piece you wanted to use on her. I'm super impressed. I've got to try this.

Be Blessed, Beckie

I agree Ellen! She is the picture of innocence and beauty. Too cute! Your card is so pretty. I am still unsure of digi anything. How do you paper piece it? Do you print it on the back of a printed cardstock piece? How do you cut it so accurately?
