Best Friends

Another iCopic's Tips and Tricks Tuesday and I have two little tricks for you today.

Trick #1 - I'm a *flicker* sort of girl!  For the hair on my little ladies today I started by flicking the darkest colors, then the medium colors and then just did a slight blend for their hair.  I wanted the textured look for their lucious locks!

Trick #2 - fussy cutting is quick and easy and I find myself doing it on many of my images.  To get a smooth line when cutting, turn your paper, not your scissors.  I take lots of tiny straight cuts on the more detailed areas of the image.  Pop your image up on foam and it adds great dimension to your project!

Awww very cute - love the way the hair turned out, and the three black brads add an amazing but very subtle detail.
