This file has been in my digital cutting file archives for a very long time. I was happy to re-discover it and put it to good use.
The file is from Paper Piecing by Nikki (PPBN). It was a fun image to put together and pretty straightforward. And a breeze to cut using the eclips2 and eCal3 software.
No real instructions necessary and it's a pretty good way to use up some of those scraps.
Inking the edges adds dimension and a little more interest. I added a little sparkle with a clear sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir, but you could use Wink of Stella or brush on some mica for that bit of shimmer on the tumbling hearts and wings. I added a small swipe on the nose and in the eyes...but it doesn't show up much. Add a piece of twine for the bucket handle and slip it under the arm to hold it in place.
