The Spotlight Technique

It's a great week when you can muster up strength to play in two challenges!

Judy is hosting the challenge at Gina K. Designs MIUM Challenge I See Spots!

Stamped the iris image from Warm with Love by Theresa Momber, and the sentiment from Stately Flowers 8 by Melanie Muenchinger, using Memento blue for the faux stitching and the sentiment.

I used a few Copic Markers to color the spotlight image. Just stamp two identical images on white card stock. I colored one image with Copic markers. Then I took a 1-1/4 inch round paper punch and punched a portion of the colored image out. Next take a contrasting cardstock (purple) and punch a circle with a 2-1/2 inch form a frame around the spotlighted feature. For more dimension, I poured a round dome of 3D Crystal Lacquer over the top of the color image. I truly love this iris image and IT'S SPRING!!!!!

I took the little fern stamp from the Warm With Love set and made a background on yellow card using the Tuxedo blue marker as the ink to tie it in. Finished with three sequins in pale blue, deep blue and golden yellow.

Thank you dear ones, for taking the time to stop by
and leave me encouraging words 
from your hearts.
