SPOTLIGHT AN IMAGE

Good Morning, no rain today so we are all happy. Today I wanted to show you how to showcase or spotlight and image.I learnt this trick from Jennifer McQuire. I will list my supplies down below. The background is black with white pigment ink stamping with the Altenew Remember This stamp set. I did some 1st and 2nd generational stamping to help give depth. I deliberately left where I tried to double stamp, it gives the appearance of wind blowing. Now for the the flower I stamped the outline in black, both flower and leaves. Next was learning to water colour them, one leaf and petal at a time. I placed a small amount of water on one petal, painted it in layers with Rough, Rubellite, and Ruby Red. Skip a petal and follow the same procedures making sure I did not paint side by side petals. It took a lot of practice to have the look I wanted. After the flower was done I did the same with the leaves using Limeaide and Moss. Then it was time to die cut out my images, even the practice flowers. Next I placed the flower on my card base and positioned where I wanted to glue down the leaves. After the leaves are in place I borrowed another trick from Jennifer McQuire, and glued the flowers on top of each other then glued it onto the card. I stamped You are one of a kind sentiment from Altenew’s Incredible stamp set, with Versa Mark onto black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder, and glued it right onto the top of the card.. I finished off the card with some iridescent dots.
