House Mouse Monday Challenge #22

Paper Piercing.... that's the challenge this week for the House Mouse Monday Challenge #22. You must include some sort of paper piercing in your project. I did a little paper piercing in a class I took last summer and the one thing I remember is that you can keep your holes in a straight line by following the grid of a piece of plastic canvas mesh. So naturally, after that class, I had to buy some plastic canvas for all the paper piercing I was going to do. Yesterday, when I started this project, I had to dig it out of a drawer! Go figure...

With plastic canvas in hand, here's my take on paper piercing for HM #22. I used "Gentle Rain" and colored Muzzy with Prismacolor colored pencils. The paper came from some long ago purchase of a 6x6 paper pack, the ribbon is from Michaels, the butterfly is K&Company and, as usual, there is a touch of Stickles Diamond glitter glue.

Thanks for looking. All comments are appreciated.

Cheers, Judi
