Spotlighting is a great technique to use on detailed or large outline images. This card features Stampin’ Up!’s Corner Garden stamp – which is quite beautiful on its own simply embossed in Gold Embossing Powder. I picked one portion of the image to highlight, and used the aquapainter and Wisteria Wonder reinker to watercolour the one large flower and complimented that with the sentiment from And Many More stamped in Wisteria Wonder. This technique also makes colouring a large image less time consuming – by selectively colouring one area, you can add a detail and draw attention to one portion of the image without having to colour the entire image if you’re a little pressed for time, or just want to get it done.
My upcoming classes are listed on the YamStamps Events Page – attend a class or join Stampers Club it’s a great way to learn new techniques, get ideas and build up your card stash!
