Paper Playtime Challenge #17 - Autumn

This week's challenge over at Paper Playtime is the theme of Autumn.  So what does a little bear praying have to do with Autumn?  There is a reason for it.  :)  Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish digital stamps.  They are providing a giveaway to the winner of the challenge so be sure to participate, it's a lot of fun!  This digital stamp is one of theirs and I just fell in love with it.  They also have some amazing digital paper collections which I used as well for this card.  So the coloring in the card is more Autumn than the image.  Didn't it turn out so cute? 



The following is how I made this card:  First I printed the image on white cardstock:



Then I printed out two pages of the digital paper on one piece of white cardstock:



Then I put that sheet of paper back in my printer tray and printed the image on top of it:



I did this on 3 other sheets of paper (6 different digital designer papers).  Then I cut out the pieces I wanted from each and paper pieced them together.  Then glued them on the first white cardstock that had the image on it.  Everything is paper pieced except the bear fur.  I colored that in.  You'd think that I wasted a lot of ink and paper but I can make multiple cards of the same image and paper piece what's left to create the cards.  So they will be similar but each different.  If that makes sense.  :)  Paper piecing was a lot more fun that I thought it would be.  I'll definitely have to try it out again.
