CAS challenge @ The OUTLAWZ PARTY!!!

Hey all! It is time to start The Outlawz Summer Party!!!!! The Outlawz girlz have a FABULOUS line-up for you this week with LOADS of AMAZING prizes!!!! First up is the CAS group. Here is a direct link to get you a jump start:

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":

Supplies Used:
Card: Michael's
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)
Button: Darice
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 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...

so I could tuck the heart behind it.

The finished look up close:

We sure hope to have you play along with us. This is the beginning of a WEEK long celebration with a NEW challenge posting EVERY day! Did I happen to mention the LOADS of prizes? Yes, I said PRIZES!!!! Come check out the fun!!!!
