I happily renewed my subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter last month and found this lovely pierced patterns technique in the February/March 2010 issue. You may not recognize the large flourish image from the Baroque Motifs set in the pierced background of this card, but that’s the stamp I used to make it. I stamped the image with black StazOn on vellum card stock, temporarily adhered it to the Whisper White panel and just started to follow the swirly lines with my paper-piercing tool.
The rose was colored with Linda Heller’s version of the Ink, Spray & Smash technique. You use a plastic page protector so you have more control over the colors and can actually see how it’s going to look (no more overdoing the smashing!). I used the colors from the SCS color combination challenge (CC261) and followed sketch SC271.
Thanks for stopping by!
