Over at Crafty Cardmakers we have a new challenge today, Paper Pricking or Piercing. You can prick/pierce and leave it as just a pricked pattern, or stitch it. We would prefer NOT to see machine stitched creations as these are not really what we are after.
I have used a Mix N Match stencil to prick around my image from our Sponsor, Crafty Sentiments Designs, it is called Little Friends. I then stitched it with some variegated metallic thread. I have coloured it with copics, and am not overly happy with the hair, but as I had stitched all those stitches I was disinclined to fiddle with it too much in case I completely ruined it!
The mats are two different sparkly type papers from my stash. A nice flat card that will go easily, and cheaply in the mail! The butterflys are cut from shimmer papers with Magnolia Doohickey dies.
