Good Afternoon! We’ve had a fun morning here – I went with my girls to see the new Spiderman – Far from Home Movie. It’s nice to have a job where I can take a morning off with the girls! I have, for you today, a Spotlight Technique card using the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.
The Spotlight Technique is simply were you take a section of a card and show it like it has a spotlight shining on it. Usually it’s a smaller section and a round punched section.
The Nested Label Dies are perfect for this technique. It’s also good for those who dont like doing much colouring.
Making the layers for this card is easy to do. I stamped my Magnolia Stamp off the edge at the top left and the bottom right of my Very Vanilla layer in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
Using the Nested Label Dies I cut the smaller piece then coloured it with my Aqua Painter and Classic Ink Pads. The colours used were Rococo Rose and Old Olive. The colours choses were inspired by the Magnolia my Mum had grown at our family home many years ago. She loved that tree. Having your Aqua Painter brush dryer helps with the soft shading inside the petals.
After adhering the outer panel to my card base I cut another Label using the next size up die. Affixed my centre panel and adhered it over the cut out are using dimensionals. Using the one stamped piece makes it easier to line up your image.
I’ve added a piece of Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon to give it some texture and depth. A simple ‘thanks’ banner is all thats needed so as not to detract from the pretty Magnolia.
I do hope you like this fun and easy Spotlight Technique. You can experiment with all shapes and sizes to create your spotlight.
