I have never done any paper piecing, played around with acetate and glitter, but always fancied trying using the paper and like everything else ... I just needed a push in the right direction and now that I have tried it this will be something I definitely will repeat.
I have paper pieced her tail and belt in pearlescent paper, her hat and outfit with BG papers -
coloured Caribbean Treasure with my Copics and used Prisma pencils for the background - added some glaze to the bones to make them look authentic and gems and pearls from my stash. Papers are from the Indian Summer pack by Basic Grey, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts ... check my Blog Candy. Embossing folder is Swiss Dots and the gorgeous ribbon was a gift from my DT buddy Victoria.

I have inked up Hero Arts ( retired) Kitty Cat Kitten C3939, doesn´t he have the typical Cheshire cat look about him and looking very guilty as though he has had a licking session at these cakes! The Sassy Cook stamp is Denami Designs (2008 collection from the USA) and I coloured these with my Copics adding a sprinkling of Glamour Dust here and there. Matted and layered these with my trusty nestability dies, sentiment is a See D, papers are a freebie from a magazine, leaves are punched and flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts .
