Paper Piercing....

Morning all, Tracy here :)

I wanted to do a quick tutorial on paper piercing as I know it is something that some people have asked me what it is, So I thought what better way than to do a tutorial !

 Firstly you can paper pierce using rubber stamps or digi stamps, but for this tutorial I am using rubber.


You need the following items-

Stamp
Card suitable for stamping
Pens (if you are going to color your image)
Ink pad...as I am using alcohol marks I use Memento
Patterned/colored paper you want to use for piercing
Adhesive...I would recommend a wet glue as this then allows for you too have a bit of movement when placing the pierced section.








You need to stamp your image onto your plain card, and then onto the patterned paper..






If you are coloring your image then do so....





You then need to cut out the sections you wish to "pierce" I want to pierce her top on this stamp. You need to be careful and make sure you stick the stamped lines...




Then glue your sections onto the main image. I also like to add shading the pierced sections just to give it more depth. And there you have your finished paper pierced image. 




I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and have fun piercing !
