Cuttlebug Folder Art Deco

Yesterday I decided to try something new when using my Cuttlebug Mickey Mouse folder. And I love love LOVE how it turned out...
With my Momento Ink Pads (Regular Black Pad and Teardrop Red, and Yellow pads), I colored the image. I placed the embossed image onto the black ink pad and rubbed the back of my image with my finger. Then I moved the paper a bit and repeated. I continued this until I was happy with the black color/outline. Let it dry then used my red ink pad to outline the white cardstock (which I used a Nestabilities die for the pretty shape). I then dabbed the ink with the tip of the teardrop right onto the image for his shorts and tongue. I did the same for his yellow shoes. I placed him on different colors of cardstock using double sided foam adhesive, creating layers for the Shadowbox. It came out really cute. And is perfect for adding trinkets to.
