Paper Piecing Tutorial

Hello Inky Fans,

Today I wanted to show you the card I made by paper piecing my image.  This first photo is the stamp, ink and spellbinders I used to begin creating my card.

Next I chose my paper and stamped my image pieces that are to be used to dress Lili and cut them out.

Here are the pieces that I cut our that will be used to finish my design.

I colored my image with Copic Markers. The colors are show below. I used a gold Spica pen for the buttons on her rain jacket.

First I colored the image.Then I used Martha Stewart all purpose glue to adhere the pieces I cut out.

Now for the finishing Touches. I used a fine glitter on the rain drops. Lastly, to the image I used fran tage to the puddle. The water appears to be splashing up. Love this stuff. I hope I have inspired you today! Thanks for stopping by Karen.

 Here is a closer view.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
