The Friday Mashup #42 - Red Butterfly

Hi Stampers,
This is my third week as Guest Designer at The Friday Mashup.  There is a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers that shows you how to Paper Pierce around curved corners or a circle. Worth watching , this was a first for me and a lot easier than I thought it would be so I have learnt something new today.  I also Paper Pieced my flowers by stamping on Designer Paper and cutting them out. Love the look and I think it adds some dimension to the flowers with the variation in colour.

This weeks Mashup is to:
1. Do some Paper Piercing or
2. Use Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso as your colours
3. Or Mash it up and use both.
I have used both with a touch of green.
Stamps:  S/U's Fabulous Florets, Creative Elements, Elegant Greetings (R)
Card and Papers: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, In Colour Patterns Pack DSP, Well Worn DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Stazon Black, Wild Wasabi
Finishing Touches: Pearls
Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Big Shot, Sizzix Frame Oval Scallop, Vintage Wallpaper EB Folder, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Fiskars Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Thanks' for popping in today.
