Ombre Backgrounds with Oil Pastels

Happy Monday everyone! Murphy's Law is hounding me today. I've had camera and uploading problems all morning so this is coming out late in the day! Hope you try this technique for yourselves...it's so easy!

I liked the tweezer idea.

Hi, Pen! These dies work in a Vagabond, Cuttlebug, or Big Kick...or anything similar. I place my paper over the part of the die I want to cut and then sandwich it in between the 2 acrylic plates and crank it through. Let me know if you need more information and I would be glad to send you a video showing me using them or you could go to YouTube and type On the Egde, Tim Holtz Dies in the search box and likely find some help there.

Those tweezers have saved my hands many times! LOL!

Duhhh...you know it hadn't occured to me to use that die as a top frame...only as a border.

If I can also add to the question from penzupal: these dies particularly, The Tim Holtz ones also cut more than cardstock, but also cereal boxes, grunge paper, fabric. They are fantastic! :)
