Several of Alice's posts inspired me to check out this fabulous tutorial on how to leave pieces of your image out of the nestie. After I finished, I realized that it's probably easier and a lot neater if my image only had one piece sticking out. That's why you see jagged tears from me forcing the two parts into the circle before running it through my die cutter. Hey, it was my first attempt and I'm just happy that I finally tried this technique! Next time it will be perfect. ;) After I die cut and coloured the image, I worked on creating a fun but simple background for it. The embellishments were part of my birthday RAK from Angela and the sentiment is from Unity's September KOTM.
Don't forget to play Aloha Friday with Amber Ink! It's fun, easy, and you just might win something! Also, Amber Ink's INKredible 21 Day Challenge is now in full swing. You have until November 10th to enter for your chance to create a set of your very own with the über-talented Amber!
