"In The Spotlight"
This is a nice technique for using large detailed or background rubber stamps. It spotlights parts of an image that otherwise would get lost in all the detail. For these three cards I used black stazon ink but very different effects can be achieved by using different colour inks and embossing powders .I would love to see your take on this technique. If you would like to try it yourself here are basic instructions.
1. Stamp your large stamp image onto two pieces of different coloured card.
2.Mount and layer the image you want to use as the background.
3. With the remaining image decide which part of the image you want to spotlight, cut or punch the section out , outline the edges with a marker or inks.
4. Using double sided foam pads place the spotlight sections exactly over the same part of the image below.
