PPA104-CAS-Elements of Style-Paper Piercing
Wow what a beautiful inspiration picture from Pals PaperArtists, love the pun too.
I was rummaging through my stash of stuff and discovered a Jewel template from long ago never used, so I thought I'd give it a try using it for paper piercing, not jewels as it was intended.
It really is a simple design, I laid the template on a piece of card stock and pierced the holes in the shape of a flower. I then punched out some petals using SU's Blossom punch (using the smaller of all the petals) and popped them up with dimensionals. Then punched a 3/4" circle of black, then a 1/2" circle of DSP and topped it off with a shiny little embellishment (also from my stash-origin unknown-don't we all have some of this stuff)?
I attached a strip of the DSP topped it with a narrower piece of black and then again (cause I couldn't stop) with another strip of DSP topped with a strip of SU's black Flourish Designer Jewels and stamped the sentiment in black ink for the final touch.
I love the way the light filters through the paper piercing to really show off the design, what do you think?
