This is the spotlighting technique; this original version's been around a LONG time.
The set I used is RUSTIC ROOSTER, a Level 2 Hostess-only set. The rooster's head is punched out with a 1" circle punch, and I trimmed Chocolate Chip card stock to be a very thin mat underneath the circle.
Card stock colors are Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Ruby Red. The Whisper White strip is stamped in Basic Brown and sponged with Creamy Caramel. Ruby Red card stock is stamped with Ruby Red classic ink.
This stamp set is really growing on me; I'm going to miss it when the new Idea Book comes out in July! :D But you'll be seeing more of him, I promise....
To be put on my newsletter email list, please email me here! I have to have it in writing! :)
Have a great evening, and KEEP STAMPIN'!
