Tried something new with my Imagine

I had an idea that I wanted to try with the Imagine and it worked. Basically, I wanted to print a pattern paper and leave a blank area for stamping or printing. Here's how it came out.
To start, I printed the sentiment on a piece of cardstock that was about 6 X 8. Then, using a very thin cardstock, I cut the image to use as a mask. (I just used one that is built into the Imagine. You could use any shape.) This cut was placed over the printed area using repositionable adhesive. I chose a  5 X 7 rectangle that is also a built in cut and filled it with a pattern from the Better Together Imagine Cartridge. After it printed and cut, I removed the mask and was left with the space with my printing on it. I then cut it to the standard 4.25 by 5.5.  The masked area was outlined with an MS gold glitter marker. The house image is also from the Better Together Cartridge and is pop dotted to the card base. I added blue baker's twine from Jilly Bean Soup and tied the key charm to it. The charm was silver, but I "painted" it gold with a Copic marker (Y26, Mustard). It is adhered to the card with tiny pop dots.The key also hides a spot where the marker decided to leak leaving a puddle that I had to wipe up. I got most of it, but it did smear some. Of course, it couldn't have happened on the side that the house covers!
I enjoy learning and trying new techniques, especially when they work! I can see this working well for stamped images too. I'll have to try that next.
Thanks for stopping by!
