Hello lovelies, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend ? We have had a weekend of watching lots of classic films and not doing much else and it has been great.
I wanted to share a card with you today that I have been meaning to do for a long time. Then I saw the challenge theme over at Lawnscaping Challenges (click image below to take you too the current challenge) and knew it would be perfect !
I have used the Here’s The Scoop stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
This stamp set was one of my first ever Lawn Fawn sets and probably what started the addiction.
I have used a technique called Spotlight colouring, which the lovely Brianna did a great tutorial for on the Spectrum Noir blog and it can be found here.
I mixed it up slightly for my card and instead of using a pencil to draw out your spotlight area I diecut a circle.
I picked two of the stamps and randomally stamped them onto some watercolour cardstock using Versafine ink and then decided to add the cherry.
I have then used my Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils to colour this and used some greys to colour the background on the area that is not meant to be coloured.
The coloured spotlight I adhered to some black craft foam to give it some dimension which you can see in the picture below. I used black to match the black A2 card base.
For the sentiment I heat embossed the “you are so sweet” sentiment using white embossing powder onto some black cardstock and then I trimmed it down and cut one edge at a slant.
I then decided it needed a little something more so out came the sequins, I decided to stick with the theme and used clear and grey sequins on the “non coloured” area, and some clear Red, Orange & pink on the spotlight area. Then too finish off I added some Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.
If you have not used this technique I highly encourge you to, it is a lot of fun and I really like the finished card.
I hope you all have a great day.
I would like to enter this into Lawnscaping Challenge Use something sweet.
