More Ketto love

Hello and good morning!

I'm in a bit of a rush this morning so I'll get straight to my card for the day... as you can see I didn't put my Kettos away so I decided to ink up another one. Nothing wrong with that, right? ;)
I wanted to have Ginger on this journaling card but I didn't want her to cover up most of it and lose the design so I knew I would have to cut her out. But I also knew that there was no way I would be able to cut out all of those skinny arms, legs and stick pins of hers. Hmmmm... what to do, what to do? I ended up stamping Ginger twice, once directly on the note card and once on my Paper Trey card stock for coloring. Once I had her colored and started cutting her out I simply snipped all of those little pieces right off and then I just pop dotted and layered her right over my first stamping on the card. Not a bad little trick if you find yourself with a similar image. :)
