I actually intend to use these as a shape, no background, on a Valentine card. I should have imported the original line drawing into Make-the-Cut and printed it with registration marks before I colored it. Had I done that, I would have been able to cut them out with my digital cutter.
As it was, I used scissors. It could have been worse, but I learned a valuable lesson.
I also used a brush on the white pig to paint the fine white detail hairs. I am now much happier with the lines.
