Last night I had a downline meeting at my house, and I showed the ladies a fun technique to try, called reverse spotlighting. Once you’ve got your "spotlight" images cut, it’s so easy, and I really like the results! The first one uses the stamp sets Touch of Nature and Sincere Salutations. The card stock used was Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive and Basic Black.
Here are some other samples I created to show everyone other ways to use the same technique for different effects. I used Eat Cake for the Happy Birthday Card, and Touch of Nature again for the butterfly card. The colored butterfly is actually on the inside of the card. On the last card I used the spotlight technique, not reverse spotlight, to showcase the flower from Doodle This. I used Purely Pomegranate and Brilliant Blue ink with an aqua painter to color in the flower.
For our make-n-take, we used the Three for You punch box with Certainly Celery and Groovy Guava card stock, and punched the flowers out of Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate. The flowers are punched out along the bottom as well, with a white paper inside stamped with the flowers. I LOVE how the flowers exactly line up with the punched out flowers in this set!
