Introducing Mykai~ an new Digi image from In Style Stamps to be released this Friday~I just love the elegance of this image. You might be wondering how I did the paper piecing with this image. It's really easy! All I did was print the image onto the patterned paper, cut it out and layered over a second image that I had printed and coloured with my Copic Markers! I must admit that I printed the image twice onto the Designer Paper (Making Memories) as the scale of the pattern is moderate in size. If you print onto small scale DP, you should only need to print once.

The card template is from the Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge......Cool eh? Cardstock is Pink Pirouette from SU and an unknown Green from Bazzil. I coloured the green directly onto the DP with a Mimosa Copic! I added some gold highlights here and there on the card and sponged around the leaves a bit to give some contrast, wheeled a bit of a pattern onto the Pink background and uses Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up! punches to embellish!
