I have a simple and fun technique called ‘Spotlighting’ here today,
which can enhance your greeting cards!
It’s a simple technique where the image is re-stamped onto a small piece of cardstock and placed above the original image to create the illusion of magnifying the spot or creating a ‘spotlight’.
I have used the ‘Mom you rock’ stamp set from Craftangles.
It is such a pretty stamp set, and I decided to add the little bee for interest.
To ‘spotlight’ the flower and the bee, I first stamped the floral image onto Bielo cardstock
using the Misti tool.
I then placed a punched circle of the same cardstock over the area that I wanted to ‘spotlight’ and stamped the image again.
I now had a perfect image on the circle.
I then watercoloured the images using Sakura Koi watercolours.
I then added the bee from the ‘Bold Geraniums’ stamp set from Stampendous.
I then adhered the circle using double sided foam tape.
This created the illusion of magnification.
I then mounted the square cut panel onto a kraft panel (which I cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched squares dies) and then finally onto the card using craft foam to add dimension.
I added a bit of green paint splatter and some gold sequins for interest.
I decided not to add a sentiment…the card was so pretty by itself!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
