Less is More - Week 108 - Paper Piercing

As my friend Darnell would say............. WHOOSH and here we are at Wednesday already!!!  lol  Although I entered the current Less is More challenge of Paper Piercing it was a little bit of a cheat as it was also my DT card for Addicted to CAS and I think Chrissie would "like to see a bit more white card"............. (hehe) and I'd also mistakenly put Paper Piecing instead of Piercing - humble apologies.

So as I've just found a super talented lady by the name of Teri who owns Delicious Doodles I thought I'd christen one of her digi stamps called Working the Land.  I printed the image out onto super smooth printer card and die cut it with a nesties circle and matted it up on black and silver mirri die cut circles.  The background layer has been paper pierced using an Ornare pricking stencil and then layered onto a square white linen card blank.  The sentiment is Hobby Arts matted onto black card and popped up to give some dimension.

Thought you might like to see a visitor we see quite often either in the garden or the field at the back of us............amazing sight and it's not often I manage to lay my hands on the camera but he/she decided to hang around for a while...... perhaps thought as it was so wet there were bound to be a few fish swimming around!!!  lol

Thanks for dropping by.
