The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil for blending. Colors: all cool greys, grass green, olive green, dark green, dark umber, dark brown, pink, yellowed orange, silver, Tuscan red, blending pencil
The out of the box feature is very easy by cutting to the image with the regular paper cutter on the front, marking the image on the back while holding to a light source then use the paper cutter again to cut to that mark. Scissor cut the image out. My paper cutter is a guillotine style. If needed, I used a Coluzzle and craft knife to cut between the images. I do have a pictorial on my blog if you need photos, click here. Itís a direct link to the tutorial.
To add the flowers to the scene I masked off the polar bear using a sticky note as my mask. I save the mask in a binder or in the case with the image to be used again.
I used a Sizzix button die and cut just the holes out to place/glue inside the eyeletís holes, it looked strange to have an orange spot showing in the ice cream and itís yet another way to put that die to good use.

A perfect scene. The image makes me smile. It also makes me hungry for ice cream.
The little ice cream cone eyelets are perfect for this. I love that you have such attention to detail that you worried about filling in the holes. Now THAT'S the sign of someone who takes real pride in their work (and is clever enough to figure out a way to do it).
