At Inkspirational we have a technique challenge for you, and it's paper piecing (not piercing).
I used a plaid paper for the gift and cut out the bow and bells and glued on top. I used Promarkers for coloring. The image is from Stamping Bella
The backgtround is stencilled, I used a Pinkfresh stencil. Or rather 4, it's a set and it makes it super easy and quick to add different colored inks.
The sentiment is cut with silver glitter paper.
Please head over to the challenge blog to see the my INK-teamies have made.
