Hi everyone, today’s card is SO easy but I think you’ll agree it packs a bit of a punch. I pulled out the most beautiful black and white illustrated paper from the Botanical Butterfly DSP as I thought it would be so fun to colour. The paper is one you could select as your freebie with any qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration. It’s a beautiful paper pack.
For this card, I decided to do the Spotlight Technique. This means I needed to find a part of the design which would really pop when I coloured it. I’m not sure I did it the easiest way but it worked for me. I moved my Rectangle Stitched Framelits over the paper to see what looked best to my eye. When I found the perfect spot, I held the die in position with a post-it note. Next up I used the card base and positioned it over the die and drew around it with a pencil before cutting it out. I also then die cut the Rectangle Stitched Framelits die from the centre. The larger panel was adhered to the card base.
To colour this rectangular panel I used my Stampin’ Blends but you could any colouring medium you prefer. Just keep in mind that it is not designed for colouring with blends so the ink won’t blend as easily as it does on Whisper White cardstock.
Once the panel is coloured, I matted it on black cardstock. I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the panel and then positioned it in place on the card being careful to align it perfectly.
Here’s the Card…
Do you like this technique? Have you given it a try? I love it and I cannot wait to try it again, perhaps with stamps next time, very soon.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
