Mo's Digital Image Challenge #41 - Paper Piecing

Good Sunday Morning Everyone!! I am so excited to be playing along this week as paper piecing is one of my VERY favorite paper crafting techniques!!

Today I chose to use Lacie with her delicious ice cream cone as my main image. I printed Lacie once on white cardstock and then again on the yellow, flowery Martha Stewart designer paper. I trimmed out her adorable frilly dress and set it aside. I then colored Lacie with my Copic markers and trimmed her out.
I carefully added adhesive to her dress and lined it up and placed it just so on top of my colored image. I set Lacie aside and created my card.
I started with a base of SU! chocolate chip textured cardstock. The next layer is light blue textured cardstock, consecutively followed by the same MS flowery DP, lemon yellow cardstock, and light blue cardstock.
Each layer is individually stitched (you can't see the back layer on the light blue textured cardstock as the stitch I chose was too close in and got covered by the MS DP).

I then took 3 light blue circle stickers and added them for a bit of visual interest along with forming a corner with light green rhinestone strips.
I then created my sentiment layer using Lawn Fawn's Partly Cloudy set. I used the green polka dot layer from a mat stack that I have and a scrap of SU! DP to put my "keep the sun in your heart" sentiment on. I also, as you can see, stitched both sides with a zig zag stitch.
Once that was all placed down I then added Lacie to the right hand side using 3-D foam adhesive.

I hope you enjoy and are inspired!!!

Have a great Sunday!!
