 One of the things on my "try this with the Cameo" list was to create a word that could be cut.  My large Calligraphy Nib has been missing in action and I just haven't had the time to look for it or to play with it once I found it.  One of this weeks projects was to clean off the studio table so that I would have room to put cards together over the next couple of weeks.  I have been sorting, putting away and tossing since Sunday and I found the nib, lol.  While waiting for stuff to dry or just when I needed a break I started playing.  I wrote the word "believe" larger than I normally would with my C-3 nib, this is so that when I make the element smaller to fit on the card, I won't lose any of the line work, like the squiggle at the end, NW Black Acrylic Ink on crisp white paper, then took it to PhotoShop and then with the Cameo turned it into an element and cut it out.  It will take some more practice but will definitely be something I will work on the 1st of next year, so many fun things that can be done with words.  The background was done with a homemade stencil and my gelli plate, I used my double poinsettia and my favorite snowflake punch from "marvy".
This is the nib, the C-3 has a very wide tip.  Happy Tuesday to you, hugs

This is stunning! Nice job with the Cameo. Cutting words out with my Cameo is a favorite, especially when it comes to scrapbooking.
