Click on any image to enlarge. This has been a challenging week for me. I decided to try my hand at paper piercing after I purchased some digi images from Fred She Said Store. I think the card has a simple elegance with the single image and the paper piercing. It's a technique I've always wanted to try, but just never got around to doing. Now I love it. It helps that several of the images from FSS already have the marks for the piercing on some of the pages.
Of course, it's still a bit of a challenge to get it to work when you reverse the image and punch from the back side. I threw away several images before I got it lined up just right.
I also made the background paper that is at the bottom of the card. I did it with my "scribble" stamp, and some random stamping of other small stamps. I like this because I can make up whatever color I need.
