Measurements: designer paper – 3 1/8” wide, 1/16” border, navy cross panel – 1 3/8”, 1/16” border, Image panel - 2 1/8” x 2 ¾”, 1/16” & 1/8” borders.
-The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps using the Gamsol technique found in the resources section here at SCS. The oil replaces the Gamsol.
-Masking of the image and lower border after embossing was done to add the flowers.
-I used the Stampin Up corner punch and some scrap to form the outside light blue border of the image panel.
-Cuttlebug was used on the navy cross panel.
-The out of the box image is done using a technique similar (I omitted a step or two) to Julie’s which you can find here and I’ll explain for those that don’t wish to leave SCS for directions: I lie the Nestabilities die cut on the image panel and position it. With a pencil I mark the inside edge of the die cut on each side of the tail and remove the die cut. I cut slightly further than my pencil mark. Slide my die cut under the portion that will be out of the box and secure with repositional tape (I use the blue painters tape). Run through the machine to cut then emboss and remove the die cut and it’s ready to color. I color after cutting just in case I make a mistake.

Very lovely, Rox. Thank you for the details. I enjoy following your artistry. I like the matte work and the color scheme that you have featured. The out of the box image is well worth the effort as it sets the design apart from the ordinary to exquisite!
