Whiff of Joy - Challenge 39 - Piercing

Thanks to my lovely friend Bernie I've been able to take part in this challenge without using my Christmas stamps which were the only WOJ I had (see earlier post).

The challenge at WOJ this week is piercing. I've gone for basic piercing around the inner circle. I've cut around the umbrella & then used a technique I saw on someones blog (sorry can't remember who it was but they'd done a step by step so if anyone knows who it was I'd love to give them credit) to cut around the rest of the image using a circle nestie.

I love this WOJ image & it was a joy to colour. I've gone for greens, blues & pinks this time just for a change. I have lots of lovely SU card in different colours but always seem to go for Rose Red. My hands were itching to pull out a piece but I resisted lol!

I've coloured the image using copics & the paper is from a QVC pack I've had for ages. The flowers, ribbon & button are from my stash. I've used some Anita's 3D Gloss on the raindrops to give them a bit of dimention

Thanks for looking

Update - Thanks B it was Rach's blog I saw the tutorial. It's called 'out of bounds' & can be found here
