Fussy Cutting....

I did this with one of the images I coloured a few weeks ago.

This is a Mo's Digital Pencil image called "Little Elf Mim"  available as a digital image at Mo's  and in rubber at Penny Black.  I have the digital image and over the long weekend a few weeks back, I coloured it with some Copics and then did the fussy cutting.. slowly and carefully!  I ran a dark grey Copic around the edge to hid any white bits that I missed.  I added the PP to the cream card stock, after I had added some gold pen edging.  The lovely red PP oval was cut with a Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the oval before adding Mim.

I took some of my cards to work and this one was one of the first to go!  So I've started colouring a few more Mim's to make it again.  I managed to sell 16 cards!  I must admit I sell them cheaply... for way less than it actually costs to make them! but as I enjoy making them, selling at any price is a bonus.

I've got another Mo's image to colour up tonight, as I got a order from one of the woman at work for a "girly" Christmas card for her 3 year old and I found the perfect image over at Mo's.

Thanks for popping by today..  I really appreciate all your lovely comments.

Dawn this is a wonderful image, I get so tempted to buy them. I am so glad that you sold some of your wonderful cards. I can see why this card was one of the first sold as it's so beautiful.

Fussy is an understatement....this cutting is so precise I don't know how you ever did it. This guy brings a real smile - your coloring is top-notch! Glad you are selling some of your work - it makes it less guilty to buy new products. Love this.
