Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends - Challenge #6

Hi Everyone,
Team B is up with a new challenge, 3 new sponsors, and new DT members for you to stop in and meet.

I am using Spring Banquet, from the Etsy shop of sponsor, Ching-Chou Kuik.  There are so many beautiful images for coloring.  This one kind of intimidated me, but all I had to do was get started - and I was in love!

I decided to use the "outside the box" technique for her hair and have a quick picture for you to show how easy the look is to accomplish.  You just decide where the image is going to extend beyond the border of the die.  I draw a light line inside the die and snip the spots that are going to be outside so they can rest on top of the die when I run it through my die cut machine.  After the die cut is ready, then it's time to fussy cut the other spots.  You can see this most clearly on my card with the hair on the lower left.

Stop by the Lil'Patch blog and see what the rest of the team has for you for our latest anything goes challenge.

Come and play along with us this week.  Our Sponsors are:
