IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR MY TUESDAY THROWDOWN CARD TODAY,
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN ONE POST.
Our challenge for May over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun has four sponsors; Dr. Digi's, Julia Spiri, Lemon Shortbread, and Scribbles Designs. We have a fun theme of "Using Your Favorite Technique." There are several I really like to use but doing a Spotlight Technique has been a favorite ever since I first tried it. Recently, I learned how to do a Double Spotlight and I love that even more!
The image I used is "Flower Pot 2" from Scribbles Designs.
I took my colors mostly from the inspirational photo at
After the image was printed, I printed a second one and colored only the flowers (ProMarkers.) I cut it with a Scalloped Stitched Circle die from Memory Box, then cut out the center of that piece with another, smaller die from that same set. I mounted the center piece onto Pop Dots so that it was raised above the main spotlight piece. Lining up the spotlight pieces with the black and white image underneath resulted in an out-of-the-box technique also.
With so much detail from the two techniques, I used a very CAS design for the overall card. The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and adhered to the background dp which I found in my scrap basket. I thought the tiny dots in the dp pattern complemented the stitches in the die cuts.
