Hello there! It's Theary back on the blog today. I have a fun card technique to share with you today. It's my take on the spotlight technique. The spotlight technique highlights a design element on your card front, and I decided to twist it up by emphasizing the background scene. So, instead of putting color on my stamped image, I only added color to the background scene. I am leaving an untouched stamped image which I think looks fantastic.
I stamped one of the images from the Botanical Borders set with black ink onto a mini slim line size cardstock. The alignment guide was helpful here, as it centered my image onto the card stock without all the headache. I also stamped that same image onto masking paper.
Later, I fussy cut the image from the masking paper and placed that over the stamped image. Putting the masking paper here will help protect against the ink blending I will work on next.
After applying the masking paper to the image, I used a blending brush and blended the background scene with some dye inks. I then splattered some gold and white paint onto the card panel.
