Spotlight!

Happy Tuesday! Tonight is the last class for the spring stamping class I have been teaching. Our technique this time is spotlighting. It is such a simple, yet fun technique to do. This is great if you have a large stamp that you don't like to color all the time or perhaps intimidates you. Stamps with lined images work best for this technique.
I used this Penny Black image, the size and image are perfect. I did add a bit of Sakura clear glitter pen over the petals so just imagine the shimmer if you will ;). This card done in different color schemes would make a wonderful set for gift giving!
Stamps: Penny Black
cardstock:vanilla, black, apricot appeal
ink-black, apricot, close to cocoa and pumpkin pie markers
other: Black grosgrain ribbon, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" circle punches, dimensionals
