Pierced Spotlight

Doesn’t the Juntos Designer Series Paper look like it was made for the Rustic Rooster hostess set? I love the More Mustard and Really Rust colors with this image. The technique I used was something I saw in the February/March 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I simplified the technique by using a piercing template; it really helps you get those piercings spaced evenly!

The diamond background was created with a Texturz plate in the Big Shot and sponged with Chocolate Chip ink afterwards. I stamped the rooster with Basic Brown ink and colored in the spotlight with watercolor crayons and an aqua painter. I didn’t want to use any ribbon (trying to keep the card masculine), so I added a few brads in the bottom right hand corner.

Thanks for looking!

    I love this! I am so partial to roosters and the piercing technique with spotlight is the best. Thank-you for sharing this card.
