So Jealous

Today is the start of a new Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge featuring paper-piecing.  I feel like I have been waiting for this moment forever and a day because I always thought this elephant's dress was ideal for piecing but had never got around to it.  I'm sure you can relate so dust off those gems and join us!  Btw, we have a special guest this month, Sylvia of Poppy's Papercraft Patch.  Do stop by and leave her some love on her fab card.  You'll be inspired again by Sylvia during our mid-month inpiration post so do check in again.

For my card I decided to paper-piece all of her outfit--I mean obviously someone as glamorous as Miss E wouldn't have it any other way.  I then took my BG72 Copic to shade a bit.  I love the effect.

You'll notice that I listed Stazon as the ink I used; that's because the paper has glossy orange flowers which other inks can't stick to.  Stazon worked a treat.

The Details:  Art Impressions Elephant Set, DCWV Cafe Mediterranean cardstock, Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black, Stazon Jet Black, Glossy Accents

I'm entering this in Little Tangles #61 Paper Piecing and Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes
