If you have been coming to my blog for any amount of time, you will know I LOVE paper piercing! This months Technique Junkies Newsletter (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is a sponsor for them) is geared towards being on a budget!This technique is called Pierced Spotlight. You can find out more information about this technique AND many others at http://www.patstamps.com/

I colored the spotlighted image with the chalks first, then shadowed a bit with the colored pencils to make it POP a bit more.Now, if you participate in this week's CPS Challenge and Monday DT Challenge, you will have an opportunity to win the beautiful Floral Flourishes set by Korin. If you would like to win this stamp set go to CPS's blog and follow their directions.

Wonderful creativity on this card, Chris! So soft and peaceful...
Well, I managed to get 2 cards in the mail today...misplaced some addresses or there would have been more. Will try to do better.
I made one card for the PCP challenge with the sketch, not happy with it. Hope I can get another one made that I like better.
Hugs and have a wonderful day!
