Have you tried the Drawing Tips that are available for the Slice? Transform your Slice from a cutting machine into a colorful drawing machine! There are four color collections – all black; basics (black, grey, brown, and red); primary (green, yellow, red, blue); and brights (pink, purple, orange, turquoise).
To learn about how to change and recharge the ink in the drawing tips, take a look at this video.
Here’s a card I made using the primary collection of drawing tips.
First I laid my white textured card on my Slice mat, and used the green drawing tip in my Slice with the Baby design card to draw a 3” shadow of the baby building blocks.
I put the large butterfly in the approximate position where I wanted it to be, then used the yellow drawing tip with the Basics 2 design card to draw my two 1” butterflies. I love how I can use my Slice at an angle like this, putting it exactly where I need it on my design!
I wanted a softer look than the colors the drawing tips gave, so I cut the same butterflies at 1” using the shadow feature. I fixed the vellum butterflies (let’s call them the wings!) with Making Memories colored staples.
For the baby building blocks, I also cut a 3” shadow from vellum, then a regular 3” cut of the same shape from Making Memories Dilly Dally paper. I layered the vellum so only part of it was over the green of the drawing tips so some parts looked lighter than others.
The beautiful printed acetate butterfly, plus the sparkly flower and butterfly brads, are all from the Making Memories Dilly Dally Collection.
