I've performed the acquire image to take a scan of a drawing into Affinity Photo. Then using the selection tool created a mask so that I only have the illustration of the giraffe with no background. I've then embedded the giraffe illustration into Affinity designer so that I can print 4 coasters on to different solid coloured backgrounds. 


The issue is you can see a white edge around the giraffe embedded document layer and this is being printed which then shows on the sublimated coaster.


Please does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?


Or if you can point me to a better explanation of layers?


I haven't used Adobe products and am new to Affinity products. I have tried to find the answers in the help and on the forum but can't find anything and none of the videos seem to cover it.


I have attached a screen shot of the image showing the white edge. And one of the coaster with the white line of the embedded document.


Any help much appreciated

Was there ever a solve for this? I have the same issue.
