On splitcoaststampers today the challenge was to"poke a hole in it" by featuring paper piercing on our cards. I had two more mixed and masked pieces that I hadn't turned into cards yet, so I took the challenge and put them to work.
|This first one was embossed onto a piece of colored cardstock. I colored first with colored pencils then with a blender pen loaded with pastels and finally added white and red gel pen accents.|
|Another view of the same card|
|The second card has a butterfly embossed over a music sheet that had been glued to a piece of card stock and spritzed with a walnut stain. I masked and sponged with Turquoise and Island Indigo.|
|My piercing this time was done from the back using a guide. The banner was embossed then die cut and sponged and sprayed while in the die. I added a linen thread bow and popped this over my pierced heart.|
