 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #39
Paper Pricking

This fortnights challenge theme has been chosen by DT sister Josephine.  

Ouch to my finger after this one lol,  I have not done paper pricking before so thank you Josephine for the challenge, such a cool effect but oh so time consuming :) :) :)
For this simple multi layered card I started with a cream base the added a die cut doily created from vellum.  The doily was made by using four corner dies so I could get the exact size I wanted.  Next was a scallop edge circular die cut followed by my completed paper pricking layer.  The final two layers were vellum again and a birthday stamped sentiment die cut using one of my small circular dies.  I do so love monochromatic cards made up of many layers which at first glance are not obvious so yep, I did enjoy making this one :) :) :) To complete the card lots of pearls.
