Squigglefly Challenge: Paper Piecing

Here's a great image from Squigglefly called Mia and Bosko. I just love this adorable little girl and her cute cat. The challenge on their blog this week is to do a paper piecing project. Paper piecing is when you stamp on various papers and piece those papers together to create your image. For Digi-stamps, I created a template on a plain sheet of paper by printing out my image multiple times, then I gently glued down some colored and printed papers to that sheet over those images (so I know that my printer would print the image exactly where I wanted it to. Then I had my image printed in multiple colors that I could use to "piece" my final project together. To see this adorable stamp in the Squigglefly store, CLICK HERE
