Insert the image of the hat. Remove the background. Place it on the sheep's head, to see if it fits or have to make adjustments to make it fit. Set the settings to engrave and group the hat and sheep. Click on outline and set it to zero. Then group it again.

Insert a circle and place the circle around the sheep image.

Insert the clover image and make it to size. Then copy and paste the clover and put it on the line of the circle. Keep repeating till the circle line is filled with clovers.

Once that is done, you can move the circle and set it aside. 

Do the same with the sheep and group all the clovers, so they can't move.

Set the settings to engrave.

Then put the circle and sheep back in place.

Step4: Flower

Once everything is engraved and cut, you can start coloring the sheep, flowers and clovers.

I used posca paint markers. Once that is dry you can glue the sheep on the circle and then glue the outer border onto the circle and your project is done.
