A big EEK!

I apparently I was in the mood of torturing my hands tonight. My sister sent me some of the stamped images from "Booglie Eyes", so the only way to use them nicely is to cut them out. Luckily, since I have been taking an unwanted hiatus from the stamping, I could actually cut out all those little guys without even hurting my hands! (Excessive cutting had been hurting a few weeks ago). Anyway, this card is quite large, about 8x4. The Booglies were coloured in using prismacolors, gamsol, and stumps. Then I cut them out, and placed them over the letters and labels and added a bit more shading around the letters and booglies. For this type of layout, I actually recommend cutting out the coloured images in place of masking. Looking at it, I think it would've taken way longer, and been way more frustrating to try and mask the letters. If you cut out the images, you can see where they look best. It's nice to have that flexibility.
