“Fin”tastic Paper Piecing and Copic Fun!

Hi ya everyone!  Melissa here from Melissa Made and I’m going to share a fun tutorial on how to paper piece with the AMAZINGLY adorable Mermaid from one of the new release sets from Some Odd Girl.  This might be a bit different from other paper piecing tutorials as I’m going to show you how to use your Copics to add a bit of depth to your images even on the paper pieced portion!  I’m also going to share with you why clear stamps such as Some Odd Girl stamps are perfect for paper piecing!  So join me for this fun tutorial!

Before we get started I used the following items:

  • Some Odd Girl New Release Stamp
  • X-Press It Blending Card Stock
  • Bo Bunny – Barefoot & Bliss
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Copic Multiliner 0.5
  • Copics – YR12, YR15, YR18, R20, R22, R29, E000, E00, E11, E13, E51, E53, E55, E57, B12, B14, B18, BV23
  • Bazzil Cardstock – white, blue and orange
  • Cutter Bee Scissors
  • Twine
  • Adhesive

Thanks for joining us for this little tutorial!  Stay tuned!  There is much more to come.  I’ll leave you with a little sweet view of this adorable Mermaid from Some Odd Girl that you will have to have for your stash.  I’ll tell you a little secret – she’s not the only one in this set 😉
