Dotty by the Piece

Challenge #4 at Use It or Lose It: Paper Piecing
The paper piecing technique using scraps was used to make this card from Wishes.  This technique uses scraps of BTP or Cardstock to fill an image with color. On this card the petals of the flower from the Just For You stamp set were stamped on different scrap papers, cut out and put back on the stamped flower  image. This technique is used when you don't want to color in an open stamped image. The areas of the image are "colored" in with the pieces of  the paper.
Give this technique a try and share with us at Use it or Lose It.
