Spotlighting Technique

Step 1 - Stamp your main image twice, the first time will be on the actual card stock you will adhere to your card, the second will be the image you will add color to and punch out.

For this sample I've chosen to add Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Old Olive ink to my flower using a Blender pen.

*tip - if you choose to use a Blender pen or watercolor, make sure to stamp your image using permanent ink, like StazOn.

Once the image is colored, punch or cut it out. In this case I've punched it out with the 1-3/8" circle punch.

Layer it onto coordinating card stock, and adhere it over the matching section of the plain stamped image.

Here's a fun touch I've added to this card. Using Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, I picked up a little of the paint with my Blender Pen (a separate clean Blender Pen, not the one I colored with), and added some shimmer to the flower. It's tough to see in the picture, but the shimmer adds a special touch to your card.

Here's the finished card.
