The Spotlight Technique using Rose Wonder

Rose Wonder Spotlight Technique cropped_May 19 2016

As soon as I saw the Rose Wonder stamp set and matching Rose Garden Thinlits in the Occasions Catalogue, I knew I had to have them!  And I have had so much fun using them for all kinds of different techniques.

I thought I would try using the large rose stamp from Rose Wonder to make a card using the Spotlight Technique.  In this technique, only part of the image is coloured, making it the spotlight of the card.  It’s the first time I’ve used this technique, and I think it turned out really pretty!  I will definitely be trying this technique with other stamp sets!

I used Shimmery White cardstock to stamp the image on, and coloured the focal image using Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral ink pads and reinkers with my Aquapainter.  The coloured image is matted on Basic Black, and the card base is Calypso Coral.  The sentiment is from Endless Thanks.

Let me know what you think!

    Love this technique! I wonder why I can never come up with these original ideas.
