Spotlight Stamping Technique - Band Together Stamp Set

I watched a great tutorial by Jennifer MacGuire which inspired me to try the Spotlight Stamping technique.

I found I didn't have a large suitable floral background stamp, so I used one of the large flowers in the Band Together stamp set.  I decided to cut the head away from the stem of my large stamp, as it makes stamping the flower so much easier and I can always stamp the stem separately, if and when I decided to use the flower and stem together for future projects.

The stamping in Smokey Slate ink on the main background panel is not as pale as I would have liked it to be.  I did second generation stamping for that layer, but it is the palest look that I could achieve without losing the detail of the flowers. 

The heart which forms the focal point was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and was die-cut before I coloured it using a selection of my Stampin' Blends pens.

I really enjoyed making this card, although it was a little labour intensive.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp up each layer, adding and removing each piece from my positioning tool as I stamped each of the flowers, to make sure my layers would line up after I die cut the heart shaped spotlight piece. The process would not have taken long if I had been able to use just one large background stamp.  But it was enjoyable and relaxing and I am really pleased with the finished card.

Have you tried spotlight stamping ?   If not, why not give it a try.  It's a great technique.

Well that's it from me for today.  I do hope you like my card and maybe feel motivated to give spotlight stamping a go.

Thank you for looking.

Bye for now and....................."Happy Stampin!".
