Happy Friday, and welcome to another Angel Company Blog Hop on The Savvy Projects Blog!! Today is a "Technique" Hop and we are featuring "Spotlighting"! Don't tell anyone, but this is a new technique for me, I have never used this technique before, shhhhh... :)
That is the wonderful thing about these blog hops, you get to try out new things and if you follow the hop, you get to see all the wonderful creations that everyone else made! So many ideas, and different points of view to inspire you!! Exciting! Even better, get your Angel Company stamps out and join in the fun!!
My first card today uses a new set from Nina B. called "Fairy Wishes". The spotlighting technique is where you stamp your image twice, then use a punch or die cut shape to "spotlight" an area of the image, coloring only that small area that you have punched out. Don't you just love this set!? The sentiment is one of my favorite sayings!!
I decided to add a cut out 3-D butterfly, just to see how that looked, it's fun to play!
I also added some shimmer to the wings with my stardust gelly pen, it just doesn't seem to show up in the picture. These are not colors I would normally use either, but I am liking the combination! I am pretty pleased with this card, my first "Spotlighting" ever!! :)
This is my second card. For this one I used a couple more new sets called "Be Fabulous", and "For Everything". I love these sets together! I stamped the pattern from "For Everything" onto the kraft card stock with a Cloud White Vesa Magic ink pad. (It might have been nice if I had used Momento Rich Cocoa ink for this instead.) I colored my "Spotlighted" area, then added my layers, the ribbon and buttons just finished it all off! So what do you think?
I hope that you will head over to The Savvy Projects Blog and take a look at all the other ideas using this fun technique, that's where I am going now!! Or better yet, join in the fun, we would all love to see your creation "Spotlighted"! Add a link to your card or project at the bottom of the "Spotlighting" Post on The Savvy Projects Blog!! Now I am off to see everyone fabulous art work!! :)
Hope you have a wonderful day and weekend!! Thanks for stopping here!!
Edited to add: You have to check out Deb Miller's card, apparently we were on the creative wave length, I think I like her card better, much more polished!
