In the Spotlight
Good Morning Everyone!
My post today comes to from Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog. Our challenge this week was to use a technique called "Spotlight Stamping". Here's my take using the technique:
Basically the "Spotlight Stamping" technique is taking a section of your stamped image and placing the focus or "spotlight" on a section of it. Here's a link to a great website/blog that explains it - Techniques Zone.
If you look closely at the second picture, you will that I used 3 heart shapes to spotlight a part of my stamped image. I used a brand new paper pack that will be released on 2/1 called 'Lollydoodle." I then used our stamp set called "Classy Doily". This image coordinates with our Artiste Cricut cartridge. You can find the image on page 56 cut at 3 1/2" - C5, Shift, Accent 1 < H >. I used Cotton Candy and Chocolate ink on the image. I used a heart shaped punch to punch out 3 hearts. I colored select portions of the stamped image using a Cotton Candy marker.
