Cut away

This month we tried another technique – cutting away at part of an image to allow the background paper to show through. Alice showed us this technique using a butterfly image and this is my take…..I started with a piece of glossy card stock that I had previously colored using reinkers and water. I embossed the dragonfly images (company unknown for the larger ones, SU for the small) and stamped the cattails (Stampscapes). Using an exacto knife, I cut away at the larger dragonfly wings, to allow the blue card stock to show through. The purple background is stamped with canvas (SU), along with swirls and flowers (Autumn Leaves). The “imagine” embellishment is from Making Memories and is mounted on an oval die cut from sizzix.
