Hi! It is Lisa here with you today and I have a fun technique to share with you using a slightly older Lawn Fawn set, but can be used with any stamps you have! The technique is called spotlighting. Many of you may already know what this means, but for those who don’t it means there is a focus of colors in one specific area while the rest of the card is monotone.
For this card I’ve used the Lawn Fawn Color My World Stamp Set, Circle Dies, and various Copic Markers (C1, C3, C5, Y15, Y17, YR04, YR07, YG17, YG25, R24, R29, RV14, V22, V25, Booo, E35). I started by stamping the crayon image randomly onto one panel of cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Next, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto black cardstock and adhered it across the panel. To create the highlighting effect I could have simply masked the area I wanted to highlight, but I decided to make it easier and die cut the area instead. Keeping the circle separate from the rest of the panel I started coloring the images in. The outer panel was colored with grey markers, while the inner circle was colored in bright colors. Finally, everything was lined back together and adhered onto a cardbase.
I hope I’ve inspired you to try this technique, or to pull it out of your bag of tricks and play with it again! Maybe you could even enter it into our latest challenge for a chance to win an awesome box of goodies?!
