I bought this die a while ago, but hadn't used it yet. First, I die-cut it from acetate to create a stencil, which I taped down over my card front. Then I added colour over top with my brushes. I love how these brushes blend the colour so perfectly. I only used two colours of ink, brushing lightly over each section to building layers of colour.
I added a white heat embossed sentiment banner and die-cut "you" to add a small bit of dimension to my one layer card.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
Edited to add: A few people are wondering what type of acetate I use to make my stencils. I buy Grafix acetate sheets (.007 thickness) that I buy in packages of 25 (12"x12" sheets) through Amazon. It works for me with my Big Shot and I also cut a LOT of stencils with my Silhouette Cameo using the same acetate sheets.
