Bolts About You

Color challenges are one of my hardest challenges. I looked through my stamps until I found the robot image that I felt works well for the 4 MFT colors. I stamped and then colored him with Copic Markers.  After coloring him, I used the matching die to cut him out.

 The trick I use to get a better die cut is first die cut a piece of thinner card stock. I place the cut out over my colored image making sure to get an even amount of white space around my image. I place the die back into the negative space. If there is a place to secure the image and die together using some washi tape I will, otherwise I just try to be as careful as possible while running it through my die cutting machine.  I cut a frame using the MFT Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Stax and ran it through a GEARS embossing folder. I also cut a smaller frame to place on the inside for a little added pop of color. I stamped the sentiment using my Misti and placed the robot onto an Action Wobble. The sequins were added for the finishing touch.
