I really wanted the sentiment to stand out so I quickly heat embossed clear powder over the sentiment. And hopefully these photos show off the colored images. I love this option for die cutting over solid card stock or always having to choose prints, of course, that will always be the number one way to go. Having another option is just awesome!
If I may make a suggestion, I would leave some room around the images when you are cutting them. And actually color all the pieces while they are still on the cutting mat. It makes keeping them still so much easier. The space between each cut allows you not to worry so much about coloring inside the lines and not coloring accidentally over another piece.
