CARD DETAILS

I’m using a new die by Jane Davenport and Spellbinders called Marcia’s Makeover, many other dies can be used in the same way. I will recommend you use a die that is not too detailed as that will make inlaying all of the little pieces a very difficult task.

This die is rather large, in fact, it is bigger than an A2 card, but it can still be used for a project of that size, or it can be used on a larger project as well.
To color with paper you’ll, of course, need to decide on the colors of cardstock to color with. I had several groups picked out, although I only used the one with pinks. For each group I picked a cream sheet, to create skin, a black sheet to make the outline and 3 colored sheets to actually color with.

To make adhering the pieces in place an easier task I started by adding double-sided tape to a sheet of cardstock that will make the base of my die cut. I first used white cardstock, but later on, I discovered that using black cardstock works better as it hides any imperfections you might have when inlaying the pieces together to color your image. If you have a black die cut outline, I suggest you go with a black base, but if you have a white outline – go with a white base.

I used wide tape to add adhesive to my paper, there are also large sticky sheets out there – doesn’t matter what product you use, you just need something to add stickiness to your die cut base. Next, I die cut this shape out in my die cutting machine with the adhesive side facing up, die cut the black outline and adhered the two together.

Because I am using 3 colors of cardstock to color with I can actually color 3 die cuts at once and have no leftover die cut pieces whatsoever. If you want to minimize the waste, minimize the leftover die cut pieces consider making several die cuts at once to utilize every little piece of paper.

Once I inlay the final hair pieces you can see how gorgeous the hairs turned out! If you are not into coloring using the traditional coloring mediums – be sure to give this coloring with paper idea a try! It’s absolutely easy to do, all you need is some colored cardstock.

Now before I inlay the faces I want to add some color to them. For this, I am using supplies from Jane Davenport Making Faces collection and those are various coloring mediums that look very much like makeup. I’m using Jane’s Palette Pastels in Birthday Suit and also one of her blenders to apply color to the die cut. This in a way, is like doing makeup but on paper on the paper face. I first added a light blend of color and next applied some shadows. I also added some blush and some color to her lips and eyelids.

I went with a very nude look, not much makeup at all, but you can certainly go wild and give Marcia a very bold and colorful makeover if you want.
Once I inlay the final face pieces you can really see this die cut come to life.

Having colored all of the girls today I also decided to add some foiling going across their hair. If you missed my 7 Hot foil Stamping tips video – be sure to watch it as I share a lot of tips in that video in regards to hot foil stamping.

Next, I foiled “Hi” on all of the girls and I also added a sub sentiment to each of them. I foam mounted my die cuts onto A2 card bases covered with colored cardstock in various colors. I also added some accessories to the girls – the first one has a gold die cut collar, the 2nd one a scarf and the 3rd one has glasses. I also used a shimmer pen from Tonic Studios to add some shimmer to the darkest pink cardstock and finally adhered a gold glitter enamel heart onto each one.
