OK, so I am a day late, but I didn't get to cheat this week, so that counts. Good grief what was I thinking with this card?
I found an image of pooh on the internet and made it into a cutting file for my Pazzles Inspiration... thankfully that only took 3 hours... but now I have it to use whenever, and I also have an adorable pooh and tigger image (which took 5 hours to clean up and was too intricate to cut this small).
I was so happy to have him cut, that I started pasting him together before I added the ink shadowing.. oh well, I will try that next time.
But I am done. Hip hip horay! I had to hand draw in Pooh's eyes, and eyebrows. Those did not cut out too well.
Edited to add: The machine I have is like a Cricut, but without the cartridges... so I can find images online and convert them into files that my machine will cut out. It takes a little while to "clean up" files like this, because the software is not perfect. It adds extra lines that it thinks it needs to cut, while in reality it doesn't. Does that make sense?
I cut this image out of the 3 cardstock colors and paper pieced them together for the finished image.
I hope that helps clear up the confusion a little! Thank you for the wonderful comments!!
