Spotlight Technique Card - Elements of Style

This is one of the cards we made at March Technique Club showcasing a Spotlighting Technique. I used Elements of Style stamp set from Stampin' Up! for this technique and we colored a few squares of roses to 'spotlight'. The En Francais stamp set has been getting a lot of use lately, too - it always adds such a beautiful, elegant touch to the backgrounds. I also love the addition of the Glitter Brads from the Occasions Mini Catalog here!

Here's a closer look at the lift on the spotlight pieces. We also added a touch of Frost White Shimmer Paint over our colored pieces to give it a bit of shine and shimmer, but I know you can't see that in this photo. The first spotlighted square is matted and then adhered directly onto the stamped image. The second spotlighted square is punched at a bit of a twisted angle to the first and then matted and popped up over the image with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamps: Elements of Style, En Francais
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Ink: StazOne Jet Back, Markers
Accessories: 1 1/4 and 1 3/8" Square Punches, Black Striped Ribbon, Glitter Brads
