Today my card is a technique card. The current challenge over at The Flower Challenge is all about spotlight stamping and I really love the effects you can get with this technique and surprisingly it’s easier that I first thought.
I stamped my main floral image on two pieces of card stock and then coloured just one of them in. When I was starting to construct my card, I realised that when I punched out the spotlight portion I would have the makings for a second card, I like that my colouring wasn’t wasted!
Card 2: I stamped the sentiment into the space created when I cut the spotlight piece out.
For both cards I used a gorgeous set from Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely and the sentiments on Card #1 is from The Ton – Basic Labels. I used my Stampin Blends in Old Olive, Rich Razzelberry and Calypso Coral to colour the flowers and added a bit of gold thread for the finishing touch.
Thanks for looking and I hope I’ve inspired you to try this technique.
