Hi Peeps - Have you joined in yet, with the Happy Little Stampers Paper Piecing challenge? 
If not, there is still time, and you can find some more inspiration HERE at the Half-way Reminder!

As Guest Designer for the October HLS  challenge, I have another Paper Piecing card for you! 
This time I have used a Hampton Art stamp, "New York Diva", stamped with Archival Jet Black.

I paper pieced the 3 sections of the dress , the belt and the shoe.  Paper from Prima Sweet Fairy. 
Just a touch of Copic Aqua to add a little shade here and there on the pleats.
Light colouring with Copics on the skin. 
Sentiment - LOTV, cut with a circle punch.

Hope you will join in with the challenge - happy crafting!
