Hi everyone, I had such a great response to the Spotlight Technique featuring the Botanical Butterfly DSP card I recently featured that I decided to make another one. I’ve used nearly all the same supplies, except this time, I am using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and a new stamp set – Amazing Life.
To begin with, take the black and white illustrated paper from the Botanical Butterfly DSP. Select the area which you want to spotlight. Once you have identified it, I use a post-it note to hold the circle die in place. I then trim the paper to fit my black card base. This panel is then run through the Big Shot to cut out the circle you are going to spotlight. Whilst the Big Shot was out, I also cut out a scalloped circle to frame the spotlight panel.
Of course, I did use the Stampin’ Blends to colour in the panel but you can 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…
I LOVE this technique. It really is quick and easy and has that WOW factor! I hope you’ll give it a try soon. Don’t forget the Botanical Butterfly DSP is only available as a FREE item with qualifying orders during Sale-A-Bration. Sadly, Sale-A-Bration ends at the end of the month. So, please, don’t delay if you like this paper, or indeed, any of the Sale-A-Bration freebies.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
