All things tutorial

I was asked how I made Tilda's toe stick out in the last post so I thought I would do a tutorial on how to do it. I used the blue jay from all things of nature stamps set by the angel company. I really like this stamp set but haven't used it for a while so it was fun to dig it out. First I will show you the finished product and then tell you how I did it.

I colored the blue jay with copics and added lots of stickles although I don't think you can see it very well. There are doodles around the nestabilites and star doodles down the edges. I added red bead from Queen & Co. on the branch because I wanted some red in the card.

Okay here comes my directions.

After I colored the blue jay I placed the die over him to see where I wanted him. Then I put a couple of marks at the edges where I wanted the branch to stick out.
Next cut out the branch and then place the nestabilities under the branch and over the image. It wasn't quite where I wanted it so I took off the nestabilites and cut some more. This time I liked it.
Here it is cut out with the die still on it.
So there you have it. Not that hard at all. Give it a try. I'm sure you will love the results.

Great job and loved the tutorial, I enjoy doing this style with my nesties but usually do it on top/bottom but really like the side.
