No Line Piercing

Last week I saw a fun new tutorial and I thought I would give it a try.  It was called "No-line piercing".  It actually does have lines, they are just on the back so you don't see them.   This was a fun technique to try and I am sure I will do it again. 
I started by stamping on the back of a piece of watercolor paper.

The back is not going to be shown, so you don't have to be careful.  I added leaves to my flowers and even elongated the stem by free hand.  It wont show, so you can do as you please. 
next you use your paper piercing tool to poke holes all along your lines.  You can decide just how much or how little detail you want to use.   Here is how it looks on the front. 

I used my Aqua Painters and the lids of my ink pads to add color to the front.  This card used Island Indigo and Gumball Green. 

I tied some 7/16" Natural trim ribbon around the base layer, and frayed the edges a bit.   The tag is added with a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets embellishments.

This card uses Perfect Plumb and Crumb Cake. 
I used a scrap of Victoria Crochet Trim and a Antique brad to attach the "Thank You"

I tied little knots with linen thread in the center of the flower. 

I used the paper piercing template to add a pattern to the edges.
The tutorial can be found at

Both card used the Peaceful Petals stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
