Cool Tools: The cutting and Trimming Challenge!! =)

I created this piece of art for my Niece to put in her bedroom!! She LOVES horses and the carousal. So when I saw this stamp set from Lawn Fawn I knew it would make the perfect center piece!! I also decided to use several pieces of natural fabrics because Aubrey's room is done in all neutrals and I thought it would tie the piece to the room!!
I used several COOL TOOLS while creating this piece, as you can tell the images are VERY TINY so in order to get them all cut out without a mistake I had to rely on my AWESOME Micro scissors. I actually got them at an EMT Medial Training Class and they can be used for many different materials!! They are supposed to be part of a traveling medical tool kit, but I bought a couple pairs so that I could use them for my crafting along with medical emergencies!! =)
I also used my fabric scissors and a really fun fraying tool that my husband made for me out of some scrap metal pieces from a metal brush!! It makes easy work of fraying the ends of fabric and ribbon!!
Here is what I came up with!! =)

Well I know that my Niece LOVES her Canvas Art piece and I hope you have enjoyed it too!!
