Fierce Piercing

NMBS Challenge #32
It is Sunday and that means that hosting the weekly challenge on the NMBS blog. Anyone can participate, just leave a comment in this post with a link to your card and I will add it to the group blog.
My challenge for this week is to use paper piercing in a way that you may not have before. Some ideas would be: Enhance or Trace a Design, Create a Border, Intensify a Flourish, or Create Motion (bee trails).

My sample uses paper piercing to create a border around the layers of the main focal image. I also did the Rock n Roll technique to add some darker color to the edges of the butterfly. I popped up the entire image square with dimensional adhesive so you can see through the piercing a bit.

Stamps: Simple Friendship
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Riding Hood Red
Access: Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Ruby Red Brads, Dimensional Adhesive
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Set

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
