FTTC84 – Spotlight Technique



Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC84)!! This week Barbara Anders is hosting. Barbara is challenging us to the spotlight technique. Just click HERE to check a spotlight tutorial from SCS. This is a fun technique that often gets overlooked. Give it a try! We would love to see what you create!


SONY DSC  I am the one who overlook this technique. I think I have done it once before but I didn’t know it was called “Spotlight technique”:P  It gives another perspective for the stamped image doesn’t it?

I picked Sunflowers set for spotlighting. I originally planned doing only one spotlight for the image (the one with the ladybug) but I decided to add a couple more spotlights :):) The colored parts were done with Copic markers. I used the decorative border punch for the BG Origins designer paper and suede cardstock and created the scalloped designs. To finish off, it was embellished with rhinestones & cotton ribbon.



Be sure to check out other FOF’s creations!









Stamps: Sunflowers (Flourishes)
Paper: soft suede, certainly celery (SU), heavenly white (PaperTemptress), Origins DP (Basic Gray)   
Ink: Memento rich cocoa, new sprout (Tsukineko), soft suede (SU), Copic markers 
Accessories: rhinestones, cotton ribbon 
Tools: border punch, label 4 Nestabilities



Thank you for dropping by. Have a wonderful day!!
