Yesterday I was the Method Monday host over at the InStyle Stamps Blog. I did a tutorial on how to paper piece with digital images, so today I wanted to share that with you on my blog. It is really easy!!!
First decide how many different parts you will need. I needed one for the main image, a second for her left arm, and a third for each boot. So I printed three images onto one sheet of cardstock, cropping the excess image to save ink. I left a little extra room around the top one which is the one I used for the card. The others were printed close together since I only needed parts from each one.
After printing, I returned to my computer and deleted the top image. Doing so prevents the printer from printing over this image a second time. Remember, the top is the main image.
Using removable tape, I adhered small pieces of patterned paper over the area I wanted printed.
Here’s a close-up of the three images after printing a second time:
I then cut out the parts I needed and began putting her back together. Then I finished up the card to get this. Enjoy!!!
