Detailing Diecuts
The CottageCutz broom die was used on this card and boy is it a great die to detail, and easy too! All of the markings you see come through when you cut out the die.

First I took my Copic Ciao markers and colored in the markings on the cut out pieces.

Then I took my Distress Ink and a dauber and shaded around the edges. I used the Scotch Mounting Tape to make this piece raised on the broom.

I glued the pieces together and wallah! You have detailed broom ready for your card, layout or other project. I couldn't resist using this cute little spider from the Witch Hat die...again!

Check back tomorrow for Ruth Ellen's project!

That is one absolutely cute card! It really is a detailed die but I never thought to pop-dot the bottom part. I'm going to borrow that idea for sure!
