Paper Piecing CAS20

Today's CAS challenge on SCS was to use paper piecing on your card. I chose to use this adorable image from Whimsie Doodles-- besides being the most adorable things EVER, all of the Whimsie Doodles are easy to both color and paper piece! I actually printed my image out three times; twice on DP and once on Vanilla cardstock. I colored directly on the DP (Whimsie's head, legs and arms). I paper pieced the balloons, hat and the tummy part of his shell. I used a Copic blender pen to make tiny highlights on the balloons.
Ingredients: Stamps: Whimsie Doodles {The Sky's The Limit digi}, Stampin' Up! {Mini Mates}; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Very Vanilla, textured Wild Wasabi}; DP: K & Company, My Mind's Eye; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Basic Black}, Copics, Black Gelly Roll pen.
