I haven't done the spotlight technique in quite a while....and of course I got carried away with things again yesterday. Actually, I decided that the card I created for the challenge at The Paper Players (the sketch is from this weeks challenge) and SUO Challenges (creating a birthday card) was a bit too much for my technique class, so I revamped it using last weeks' Freshly Made Sketch to simplify it a bit.
I think these "Packed for..." stamps are perfect for this technique! I stamped the image three times in a row and then punched out the small circles, to be coloured and backed with the large Not Quite Navy circle to create the spotlight.
Because everything is pretty straight forward of this card, my stampers will be given the option of which "Packed for" image they'd like to use. The sentiment goes with all of them - Mom, Dad and Birthday.
I'm all packed for my next convention and looking forward to having a fantabulous time with Tamye!
Hope you have something to look forward to this week. Thanks for stopping by.
Totally cool idea!
Very cool card....I did not think I would like those stamps when I first saw them, but your technique puts them right over the top! Love it! Thanks for using my sketch this week at the Paper Players!
HI Joan! Like LeAnne said above, I wasn't so sure about these stamps when I first saw them...but after seeing your cards, now I am completely inspired to use them. What an awesome take on the sketch using the spotlighting technique. Love the bright colors! So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week and thank you for the inspiration! :)
Just a touch of color, great idea. I like the stamps but thinking of the coloring turned me off. Thanks for the inspiration.
Wow Joan, what a fabulous technique for these stamps and perfect for LeAnne's sketch! So glad you joined us at The Paper Players this week!
