The sentiment reads "Knowledge Speaks, but Wisdom listens." I colored in the stack of books, then cut my nestie with my Big Shot.
I made sure to leave my shape nested inside the die because I wanted to work the image a little more.....I colored all around the image with my ivory marker for a rustic feel - the bright white was a little jarring. Then, I grabbed my tea dye ink and a sponge and made all the edges deeper, you know for a rustic feel, like a well loved book.
Once popped out of the nestie, you still see that crisp white edge, gives great definition to your embossed edge.
