This is my first creation off of my leave of absence....of course, I had to make it for her....even if there is no where to send it, it had to be for her.
"I Miss You":
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps)
Stamps: Unity Itty Bitty "Beauitful Disaster" by Marah Johnson; sentiment -CTMH "For Every Occasion" set; Heart Template - CTMH "Soul Mates" set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Distress Fired Brick (Ranger)
Other: Paper Piercer (Heidi Swapp); Embroidery Floss (DMC); Zig Millenium Pen .01 (EK Success); Inkessentials Foam Blending Tool (Ranger)
For this challenge I chose to paper pierce as one of the requirements. I knew I wanted to use a heart so I decided to use a stamped image as a template. First, I stamped the image...it doesn't even have to be a crisp or clean image. Then, I used my piercing tool to pierce around the stamp.
Next, I cut around the outside of the pierced edging.
When I finished, it looked like this:
I then flipped it over, piercing the holes again for it to stand out more and finished up by adding some Fired Brick Distressed Ink with a foam blending tool to bring out the dimension of the holes.
I used an xacto knife to cut partial parts of the butterfly stamped image out...
