Paper-Pieced Tilda

Paper Piecing is the theme for this month's challenge over at KLSNS on PCP. The thought of dressing up Tilda in a variety of adorable "paper clothes" really appealed to me so I set out to dress my newest Tilda. Her entire outfit except for her underskirt is paper-pieced from SU's "Bella Birds". Even her hairbows are from that DP. Her sleeves are out of a yellow paper from that collection, but because of the grey tones in the dress they look more ivory than yellow. I colored her hair, skin and underskirt with my Copic markers. The red and checked DP's are from SU's "Sweet Slumber" which has some fabulous papers, and... they are textured! The buttons are punched with my Martha Stewart button punch. The sentiment is from Flourishes "Open to Love." The little hearts were punched with a heart punch I've had for a long time. I'm guessing it's a Marvy punch. I've got to get some furniture stamps for Tilda to sit on....I think she would prefer that to sitting poised in mid-air. Thanks so much for stopping by.
