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!".
