paper cutting?

Haha, this is kinda cute, right? I mean, I tried my best. Haha, to make a legitimate cut out design for my friend... it just didn't turn out quite as I expected. The paper I used was pretty thick, and so the colored part came off. I thought it was a good idea at the time, because then my cut-out would be thick and durable. But, instead the color came off.

Paper cutting is just so overwhelming. I mean, there is SO much space to fill and the artists will fill it with so much detail and precision. I don't understand! How do they make everything look so good? I would post some other examples of some lovely papercutting.. but I'm too embarrassed. But, I mean, just try googling Rob Ryan.
