I'm sharing a tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers today for No-Line Piercing - it's a fun and easy technique where you use a stamped image as a template for a pierced design. Check it out!
Here's the sample I made for the video - the floral stamp I used is from Penny Black. On this sample, I filled the flower center in with French knots - I love that look, though it takes a little longer.
The scallop die I used here is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps; the embossing folder is by Darice, and the twine is from the Twinery.
I love the look of this technique without color too, so here's a variation in white and ivory, using tiny adhesive pearls for the flower center. I painted the flower with Pearl White Lumiere paint, and the white layers have a tiny bit of sparkle (Malmero cardstock).
Here's the flower a little closer so you can see the shimmer of the paint...
...and one more bonus card, using stamps from Flourishes. This was done for last week's sketch challenge at Splitcoast!
Here's the cup a little closer - I used Shinhan Premium Watercolors to color it, and the small die cuts are from Impression Obsession.
Let me know if you give this a try - I'd love to see!
