Hello there, it's Nancy here today and I am showing you the "out of the box" technique. This technique has been around for quite a while but I still get questions about it on my blog. There are many how to videos on You Tube but I have found most of them overly long with way too much detail. I have broken it down to a few simple steps.
Position the die over the stamped image (in this case, Spellbinders Nestabilities over A Random Fan My Anchor), using low tack tape to secure the die in place. Lightly draw lines with a pencil both inside and outside the frame where you want the portion of image to be outside of the box.
Here are the pencil lines. I made them much darker than I would normally so they would show better in the photo.
Fussy cut around the portion to be outside of the box, cutting all the way to the inside lines.
Place the image back into the die, using the pencil lines as a guide, securing in place with low tack tape again.
After running it through the die-cutting machine, remove the die and erase the pencil lines, preferably with a white eraser.
Here is the finished image after coloring with Copic Markers.
Happy Monday! Simone here =) . I would like to give you a little impression about how I use distress ink for coloring. I prefer refills but you can use ink pads as well. They both work the same way. You will find all Distress products here- at the CC Designs Store.
I used the little dragon from the cute Meoples-Set "Once Upon" for my project.
I made my own color chart/palette using the template from Ranger Ink and but it inside a clear empty cd case. It works perfect to pick up the color with my brush (I prefer using a waterbrush).
Just a note: you can use this gorgeous "Baggie and Tag Die" also with cheap gift paper or your scraps to get rid of them. I really like how easy and quick it goes to make this little bags- which are expensive to buy.
