House~Mouse Challenge #22 Paper Piercing
Okay this is a new technique for me, I have never done paper piercing before. So I pulled out my trusty new nestabilities oval & scalloped oval and went to work, First I cut out, embossed and pierced the bottom oval. The House~Mouse stamp I used this time was Sweet Kiss # HMFR1004. The image is stamped onto 80# white card stock with Ranger archival ink in "Jet Black". I then colored those sweet cuties in with prisma colored pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol and blending stumps. I layered the card with bazzill bling paper in a light blue and the printed paper is an older one from Fancy Pants. The embossing was done with a cuttlebug swirl folder,"I LUV THAT THING!" the final touch was to use a Martha Stewart Dolley Lace punch on the edge of the blue bazzill bling, I think it gives the card an additional pierced paper look. Thanks for another fun challenge, enjoy and thanks for looking.
