Hi There!


Good afternoon, hope you're all enjoying what's left of the weekend. This is my card for this weeks
challenge over at Less is More . The challenge this week is 'paper piercing', something I haven't tried before , apart from piercing the paper for faux stitching. Well, I do like a challenge so I thought I'd give it a go! I don't know if it's just me but it's not as easy as I thought! You need a really steady hand or it goes all wobbly, and even more frustrating, if you pierce the holes too closely together (guess who did?) then the paper rips and you have a much bigger hole than you intended!! Anyway, this is how it ended up! Don't think I'll be in a hurry to try this technique again!
Thanks for looking!
Chris
