Wow! How cool is that!

Evening folks. I've just been having a little play tonight and am so excited with what I've found that I just had to show you what my wonderful Silhouette can do.

I bought this gorgeous clarity stamp from the NEC at the weekend and thought I would see if I could get my Silhouette to cut out the outline as my freehand cutting is so rubbish. First, I stamped the image and scanned it into the computer. I imported the image into the Robo Master software and then converted it to an outline image. The first one, I allowed a 1.5mm threshold and cut, I then inked up the stamp with gold Encore ink and positioned the stamp over the cut outline. The second attempt, I only allowed a very small threshold which cut much closer to the edge of the stamp, and then I inked the stamp up with black ink and again positioned it carefully over the cut outline. Pretty cool, hey?

I'm also having a go at making my own lattices after finding a great tutorial. I'll let you see how I get on with those! Ooooh, this machine is such fun! Right, back to it.

Have a good evening all.x
