DDH - Technique Tuesday!


We're continuing with our Grand Opening Celebrations at Digi Design House!  Today is Technique Tuesday and the design team and I are all showcasing our favourite digi technique!  Mine is paper piecing.  When I first started with digis, I had no idea that I could paper piece with them!  I was so excited about it because my Copic collection was growing so slowly and paper piecing would help me get the colours that I didn't have yet!  There's a fabulous tutorial here. 

This card is only partially paper pieced.  Just the siding on the birdhouse.  The rest is coloured with Copic Markers.  I love the look!  I added some stitching, hemp twine and buttons for detail!

Remember to comment and participate in the challenge at the Digi Design House Blog for so many chances to win!
