The Counterfeit Kit Challenge mini-challenge #2 is asking us to get busy punching and no, we don't need our boxing gloves. Paper punching is all that's called for :-)
I have a few go-to punches that I use over and over again and this time around was no exception. They are used so often that I noticed the punch themselves was not as smooth as usual and I'm wondering if they have reached the end of their lifespan - how long do your punches last?
Anyway, I knew I needed to punch butterflies but then challenged myself to use at least one or two others. In the end I used a Martha Stewart border punch and as a page tag punch. So three in total which I was quite pleased with.
A simple layout using a few products from my March kit, Soothe although I have to admit to adding the pinstripe paper into the kit when I came across it in my stash a few days ago.
The 3D butterflies were layered up with paper and vellum and I used the negative shapes too although several are covered up. The journalling is tucked behind the photo, inside a vellum pocket to keep it a little bit hidden (again!).
Nothing spectacular here but the chance to add a few sweet words in the journalling which always makes me happy.
What are your favourite punches that I really should be adding to my shopping list?
