365 Cards - Days 139 & 140

Here are my final 2 cards this week, and boy what a struggle with the final one.
Day 139 - Paper Piercing
Day 140 - Paint It!!

Day 139
I had fun with the piercing and did a cute 4" x 4" card.
I daresay I could have done more holes looking at it now, but I can always add.
Ingredients for this:-
Kraft Card - SU
Cream leather look card - from my bit box
Metal spacer - The Hobby House
Ribbon, buttons, flowers, brad and sentiment from my stash.

After finishing the card all bar the piercing I placed my largest square Nestie over the embelished piece and drew lightly around with a soft pencil, I could then pierce in as perfect a square as I could. I pierced the four corners first then halved every space between the holes with a piercing until finished. Any pencil marks can now be rubbed out.

Day 140

Oh! the woes of choosing an unmatchable colour. But the only paint I had was this, then the paper followed quite well, but to embelish was terrible I had stuff on and off and coloured with pens, too late to paint another piece as it wouldn't be dry to scan.
So my offering used these ingredients:-
Green base card - QVC
Backing paper - magazine freebie
Letter 'H' - misc. naked chipboard
Paint - Adirondack pearlised acrylic in 'Bottle'
Overstamping on letter - background stamp by Judikins using Brilliance 'Moonlight White'
Rub-on Sentiment & Sticky flower - Acts of Kindness
White Flower - Green Tara
Huge Brad - Eyelet Outlet
Piece of ribbon from bit box

Note to self - green is very hard to!!

I love your pierced card - very, very nice! I think the 'paint it' card turned out great, despite your struggles (or perhaps because of them), but I can totally relate... If only I could LIVE in my favourite scrapbook store! :)
