DDSC #87 - Paper Piercing

If you are looking for my Pixie Cottage Blog Hop post....go HERE!!

Back again - this time with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges, where this week we want to see some PAPER PIERCING on your creations. 

This was a first for me but I must say it was great fun - I haven't gone overboard with the piercing but did do some around the image and a couple of flourishes on the corner of the papers. I don't own any paper piercing templates so searched the internet for some patterns, printed one out on paper and just pricked through the design. I had some pricking tools which I had bought an age ago when I fancied trying Pergamano (never got very far with this though - far too impatient!!)

The image I have used is called "Fairy in Flight" and you can get her here in the Digi Doodle Shop.

Close-ups showing the sparkle and the piercing .

And the inside.

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Wild Rose Studios - Butterfly Garden Stack (candy win from Dawny P xx)
Swirl - Doohickey Die
Flowers, cardstock, tiny pearls, brads and ribbon - stash
Butterfly - Martha Stewart punch
Glitter - Diamond Sparkles - Butterfly Trails (Hunky Dory)

If you are unsure about paper piercing, please take a look at the rest of the teams creations. The piercing is very varied and their cards are sure to inspire you to join in with this challenge. I really hope you do :0)
Thanks once again for looking.
Hugs and Happy Piercing!!
Denise xx
