Here's my card for the Less is More Challenge week 108 where the recipe is to use some Paper Piercing.
The first thing that jumped to mind was stitching and patchwork so that's what I've done.  The squares are all Kiss Stamping using Colour Chemistry pigment ink pads - Spring Green on Powder Blue and vice versa, then Daffodil on Lemon Yellow and Valentine on Daffodil..... I think!   I just armed myself with a square palette stamp and a few texture stamps - kissed them together and stamped till I liked what I saw.  They are all Oak House Studio stamps - Rosette, Mack Rose, Thoresby Scroll and Walesby Flourish.

Here's a close up showing my paper piercing around the edges!!

I've just finished the card by matting the squares onto some pale blue card.

Well that's my card and now back to watching the rugby!  Thank you for taking the time to look and for all your lovely comments.

  2. Hi Elaine, I read it all wrong and thought it said paper piecing and not piercing but either way it works! Your card is beautiful, love those stamps and the colours you have used - clever kissing too! Hugs, Anne x
