When you don't feel like coloring...why not paper piece?

Many times, i've heard my friends say they don't like to color...or that they don't want to spend the money for the markers..one solution is to paper piece.

I am making this card for Sami Stamps and i found that this image called Umbrella Splash is perfect for paper piecing with a minimum amount of coloring..just the skin and puddle..however the puddle could be pieced as well.

I am also trying to show that this image isn't just for "spring" but can be used anytime..especially with this sentiment and if you wanted it to be seasonal... you could change out the colors :0)
I am using a sketch from Everybody Art Challenges:

Copics used:
skin-YR000, 00
puddle- BG11, 72

sun charm from Spoilt Rotten Beads
Die is from Memory Box





Challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge- Sketch #244
Top Tip Tuesday- Paper Piecing


C.R.A.F.T. challenge- Paper Piecing
