It's Shabneez here! How was your weekend? I was busy demonstrating new craft products yesterday which was very enjoyable and in fact I have another couple of months of demos coming up.
I'm up on the blog with a tutorial on the spotlight technique today. This technique is used to emphasise particular areas of a card and I've shown two different ways this can be done using the Wishes with Magnolia stamp set.
To begin, I took the stamp set and positioned the stamps individually before stamping with my stamp platform.
Next I used a couple of circular dies and die cut areas from the image I created.
I am drawn to colour pencils at the moment so I used my Chameleon pencils to colour in the images within the circles.
To compose the card, I covered my card blank with paper then stuck on the stamped image and used double sided foam tape to adhere the circles.
I stamped a sentiment from the same set and die cut it before adhering on the top.
For my second card, I decided to stamp using a different composition of the stamps and use only one die.
This time I wanted the focus to be on the flowers around the spotlight so I coloured in the images around the die cut circle.
After colouring in the image I die cut a shape at the top and stamped inside it.
I hope that you'll try the technique as it's a fun one to do. Please do let me know what you think in the comments.
See you again soon!
