A penny for the Guy?

I have only just his morning used the fabulous my guy Ian set (tut tut) but thought I would give a little demo on the Club Anya Blog of some dimensional paper piecing, which is just so effect and pretty quick to achieve.

I start by stamping Ian on patterned paper then two times onto plain stamping card stock. (you will need to stamp an extra hand on a little scrap paper). Then the top half of Ian twice onto patterned paper. Now it's time to colour... the parts of Ian that will be seen and not covered by patterned paper I have coloured with my copics. I have then very roughly coloured the edges for the parts of Ian that will be covered with patterned papers. In the picture I have tried to show the layers from left to right and how each layer will have a different element either coloured, paper pieced or cut away.

Now I apply dimensional adhesive foam to the back of each piece, I use a 1mm foam tape so the finished piece won't be too high and dense. On the hoody top I have applied a little glue to the shoulders to give a greater dimension to the waist.

So time for the fun part of applying each piece in place to create a completed dimensional Ian. If you have more time you could curve the paper pieces a little to add further dimension.

Also wanted to add that as I used memento die ink on the patterned papers I can go in with my copics to shade in the darker areas like under his chin and arms and hood. You can click on any of the photos for a close up!!!

I thought I would try Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge #46, my first go too and a fabulous Greeting farm teamy. Although I haven't followed to the sketch fully, due to my guy Ian just being so wonderfully tall, he would stretch passed the oval edge... tee hee!

I really don't need to say much as the tutorial is above... phew! although you won't need me to mention I love the fun paper!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: sassafras: Monstrosity; white cardstock; Stamps: The Greeting Farm: My Guy Ian; Ink: Copic markers: various; Memento: Black; Die's: Nestabilities: long rectangles; EK success: border punch; Other: BG: buttons; natural thread; 1mm/2mm adhesive foam;
Thanks for stopping by, I have a ton of catching up to do with all your lovely comments, so bear with me. I wish each and everyone a wonderful bonfire night! Be super, super safe and light a sparkler for me!!! Happy HuGs Kim :)

Kim, I've tried piercing and popping but never at the same time! Thanks for the tutorial! The Ian card is so beautifully made- I was just saying how hard it was for me to make 'boy' cards but you've given me great ideas! I love that sketch and all of the elements you used!
