When i saw that the Less Is More challenge was to do paper piercing I knew exactly what I wanted to ue for my card. I have had an unfinished project for some time of a stitched sentiment that I was very happy to find a use for.
I had first stamped the sentiment using a light metalic ink onto white card. Then using a very sharp needle I pierced holes following the lines of the letters making sure the holes were not too close together.
I then got myself a darker shade of pink in cotton and began sewing a very basic back stitch. it was so relaxing to sit and sew and i love the finished look adding such texture to the card.
I then used another challenge to help inspire my layout. I didn’t have an oval so i used my circle instead, then layering the white circle over my punched scalloped circle.
I wanted to use my latest purchase from The Works. A Lovely trio of border dies for such a great price. I used the smallest to add small detail and texture along the side of the card.
I am entering this make into two challenges;
Less is More – Challenge #339 Paper Piercing
MFT – Sketch Challenge
Thanks for stopping by, I love to hear back from you all 🙂
