For the upper portion, I stamped onto tracing paper then ripped the edges and glued it onto the ATC back.
For the lower scene, I stamped onto green cardstock, then again on yellow card stock. I cut out the chickies from the yellow paper and glued them on top of their green counterparts. I colored their beaks and dragged the edges of the green paper through a black ink pad.
I like the look and feel of this paper-piecing technique and use it often in my stamping projects.
On the upper panel there are rough edges and a lack of color. On the bottom we see sharp, straight edges and bright colors. Contrast--even on such a small scale--adds interest.
