This week the challenge over at FNF is to use your favourite technique.
This is my last creation for the FNF dt as sadly i have decided to step down from it :( I do wish the rest of the girls all the best and really hope that the challenge carries on going from strength to strength.
As this was gonna be my last creation for the dt...i wanted to use some of me fave 'meaningful' items from me stash.Which are these 3 stamps.
My 'technique' if it is is distressing and paper pricking.I love to 'grunge' up me papers ect with inks or chalks...sometimes i do tear and scuff it too. My other fave is paper I can't ever sew on me cards as the Chloe monster is scared of the sound of the sewing So instead i sit there with a poky tool and a foam mat and prick and prick and (Tis very tedious, but i do love the look of it)
*You can also achieve this far quicker by using your sewing machine with NO thread in it*

Please do pop over and support the FNF challenge

Beautiful card Shaz, I love the soft aqua colour and that super dark pink check is gorgeous too!
Maybe you need to find an old Singer that you can use for 'hand' sewing as there'll be no noise! A bit quicker than all of that hand piercing, beautiful though it is!

Shaz, your card is ultra delightful, so beautifully colored. I love the paper piercing - so perfect - thought you HAD used your sewing machine (w/o thread). The sentiments are so awesome - just love them - what a gorgeous card! ;D
