Challenges are back! This one was an assignment for a spotlight card. To do this you stamp the background in plain outline and then on another piece of card stamp and color in only one element of the picture.
The colored portion is cut out and attached over the line stamp with a colored border underneath. I used blended watercolor pencils for my rose.
I stamped mine in grey staz-on and then, after it was pretty much done, decided it was not dark enough. So on the spotlighted part I traced over the lines with black marker. I did this to some of the background as well.
The greeting was stamped in the grey as well, cut out and bordered with the pink scallops. I attached the blue ribbon before placing the greeting over the top.
As a last step I used Stickles on the 'Thinking' and on the highlighted portions of the colored rose.
