Pirate Birthday card (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Ahoy there Crafty Mates!!

Hehe, sorry, couldn't help myself. how cute is this little pirate from DigiStamp Boutique? I printed him out twice, once as the base and then coloured his hat, top, the flags and bird on the second copy, fussy cut them out and used some 3D glue. I have a close up photo below so you can see it a bit better. Is it called paper piecing, paper tole or another word if you do it this way?
