Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Technique

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects created using a crafting technique. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite paper crafting technique is?

For today's card I have used the spotlight technique.

Here is my card:

Here is a quick photo tutorial showing how I made my card:

Stamp the image in black on to some Whisper White

Run through Big Shot with a circle framelit over the spotlight section

After being run through Big Shot

Colour your images (I have used alcohol markers)

Add the sentiment and using the co-ordinating framelit, cut it out.

After being run through Big Shot

Adhere the large layer to your card front using Dimensionals

Using multipurpose liquid glue, line up and adhere your die cut pieces

After this step to add a little something extra,
I adhered a piece of ribbon along the side with tear & tape adhesive

This card turned out so much better than I originally pictured in my head. Gotta love when that happens. Hope you like it :)
