The Spotlight Technique: Stampin' Up! Helping Me Grow

Good morning stampers!  It's Saturday...YES! The weekend is here!!! And it's our weekly Technique Challenge inside Stamping and Blogging.  It's the Spotlight Technique. 

About This Card: Spotlight Technique

Beautiful and fun.  I used water coloring as well with the Blender pen in coloring my Spotlight areas.  You can use many different types of "coloring" and tools like the Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, Daubers, markers...
  1. Card Base is Whisper White (4-1/2 x 5-1/2 vertical layout). 
  2. Adhere 2 x 5-1/2 piece of Bermuda Bay DSP to left side.
  3. Stamp your image(s) on Whisper White with Basic Black or StazOn Black (if you're using the Aqua Painter).  Then stamp partial images on scrap white paper. Color.  And then punch out with your favorite bunches or dies. Mat them. 
  4. In my card I used the Blender Pen with Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay.  I then punched the area I wanted to Spotlight with a circle punch; matted with Bermuda Bay paper with the larger circle.
  5. Adhere all those pieces using SNAIL adhesive.
  6. Adhere to focal panel with SNAIL adhesive, while you line up the color images with the black stamped images.
  7. Stamp your greeting. I cut mine out using the Label-like stamp in Helping Me Grow...but you could use other greetings and ways to mat it.
  8. Wrap a piece of Pool Party Glitter ribbon at the bottom, love the little sparkle!
  9. Adhere your greeting.
  10. Finish the card by adhering the focal panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.
