Hot Cocoa Lili ...

Good morning! My name is Ruza a/k/a Ruza's Craft Corner, and today is my first post as a Inspirational Inkettes Designer.

Today's post features the adorable Hot Cocoa Lili. I have a little tutorial on how I went about creating the background and paper-piecing the image together.

First I printed off three (3) copies of Hot Cocoa Lili, colored Lili in full with my Copic Markers and fussy cut her out. Next I colored the pillow Lili is sitting on and added color along the edge of the image. I also colored the scrunchies in her hair for use later.

I applied a combination of Distress Inks along the bottom half of the image, with the colored pillow, and then cut some DP that was adhered above the pillow to represent wallpaper.

Next step was to paper-piece Lili using 3D Foam Squares and regular adhesive along the bottom, and then I fussy cut out the scrunchies and ran them thru my Xyron Sticker Maker before paper-piecing them onto the Lili.

Once everything was put together I layered the design on dark blue cardstock, and then onto my card. With a little manipulation, by lifting Lili's ponytail I added the sentiment bubble and sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, and you are inspired to try your hand at paper-piecing.

Wishing you a crafty weekend!
