Brayered Background and By the Seashore plus e-cutter

I know, I KNOW! That title is lengthy... BUT I wanted to pack some hints in there as to what's in store for you today!

Here is my card:

It's been a long time that I've done some brayered backgrounds, and I have to tell you, I have so enjoyed doing this one that I will do some more soon. I still LOVE doing these! I brayered the the bottom in Crumb Cake first, and then the top in Lost Lagoon and did not let them overlap to create the lighter center...  The images and greeting were stamped in black memento ink and edges sponged...

The starfish were stamped on whisper white CS in black memento ink and colored in with my blendabilities (if you don't have any, you'd stamp in black StazOn and color in with Blender Pens or Aqua Painters... I would suggest using shimmery white, Naturals White or Watercolor Paper with those!)

THEN the real exciting part (for me anyways), I used my Silhouette Cameo (electronic cutter) and the PixScan Mat/feature to cut out the starfish automatically and not by hand! Whoot, Whoot! I know this part is not SU related but can so assist you with your SU crafting!

Here are some pics to show the process of the cutting part:

This was so much fun that I may just have to do this more often. Well, scratch that.....WILL do more often :-)

Try to combine your 2 crafting passions too!!!  Have fun! Oh and here is a video where you can learn how to calibrate the mat and use the cut feature!
