. . . I actually dusted off my rusty scissors and did a little cut and paste work! And I do mean "a little" as you'll find out below the card. I am so pleased to get to play in Marion's (bockel24) annual ATC swap this year! Below is what I came up with to compliment her "My Body is a Cage" theme. My idea comes from trying to move past failed relationships, though it's hard not to protect your heart . . . it's hard to get your heart to follow you as you try to leave things behind you sometimes. (I don't know if you can tell but she's symbolically stepping out of the past and into the future - I think they look better in person.)

I made 3 copies of the same card . . . all had 4 hand cut parts on the front (I was too rusty to try my normal 50 parts like I used to do . . . okay not 50, but I certainly used to do more than just 4 parts usually) and I did some additional shading and coloring using copic markers and dabbed distressed ink. Considering I've only worked digitally for over a year now I think, I was happy I got this much done without hacking off a finger or gluing all the cards together.
I have a new and slightly unusual mini kit coming out in the next few days. Can't wait to show you all! Until then, to my U.S. friends, have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!
