Love You to the Core

Today I'm pulling out another of those products I just HAD to have and then ignored for a year.

This time it's this paper layering die from Hero Arts.

This is such a cool product line, it's one of those things I wish I had come up with.

I kept this pretty simple.  After running the die through my Big Shot, I added some very soft/light inking with a sponge dauber and Distress Inks.

Then I colored the pineapple parts using Copics (I used three shades of Copics for each of the sections).  To prevent myself from coloring outside the lines, or the die cut parts as it were, I used a scrap piece of paper that I slid behind the part I was coloring at the time.

The sentiment is from a pineapple themed set from Ellen Hutson.

I mounted the die cut piece on some black cardstock, but before doing so I popped up and kind of curled the die cut pieces with my fingers.

This is such a cool die, and you get such great dimension.  I'm so glad I finally put it to use!
