Above is my first attempt. My buddy Tim helped me draw this for my father-n-law.
Armstrong is the power plant he works at, and then his name and crew.. This was a decal for their tool boxes.

looks good... are you actually layering it on top of each layer making it thicker? or cutting the layers behind so the other colors sit flush?

Making it thicker. I do second color over a black back and then add the third color to those, then take and exacto and trim it out, so that they are held together with a solid back.

looks good.. i'll have to try some stuff out with more than two layers. i think once you get the concept down its just adding more to it.

i kept mine one thickness. i left .02" between colors and used .5x.5" diamonds as registration marks. they seemed to be the easiest for me to line up.

registration marks make it a lot easier.. i made my whole design in one window. one color per layer in corel draw. made the registration marks and outside box and put it in each layer. when i went to save it i would simply just hide the layers i didn't need and make them unprintable. the dxf only saves whats visible and printable save each layer as the filename and color. that way i guarantee it will all fit together. and for registration marks i technically use a .5x.5" square and put it on point at 45 degrees. one at far left and one at the far right at the top of the design.
