Die Cut Spotlighting Technique

Hello! I'm sharing a die cutting spotlighting technique with you today! I used pinks in my cards inspired by the May Mood Board!

On to my cards!

I created the blue one first with pops of pink, but the blue turned out much brighter than I expected and I thought the pink got I created another one so you can't miss the pink!

I took a scallop frame die from the Fancy Frames Die Set and put it in my MISTI so I would know where I would be diecutting. You could also die cut first and then tape the pieces together on the back. I just wanted to make sure I had stamping overlapping both pieces.

Then I lined up my sentiment and all my stamps and started stamping them with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Whenever I stamp I stamp at least 2 pieces (especially in the MISTI since it's so easy)! I'm pretty accident prone and I"m glad I stamped 2 this time! I did one on white for my colored pencils. I'm so new with pencils I didn't know how it would turn I stamped one on watercolor cardstock as well (watercolor is my tried and true coloring technique!).

I die cut my scallop frame from the center and I'll color in just the center portion!

I started with the pops of pink and used Prismacolor pencils in the colors pink and peach...

The robots were colored with silver and a bit of black for shading...

And then what I thought was a teal color for the background. It turned out to be super blue and I didn't like it as much. I went over everything with gamsol to blend the color and make it smooth.

In the end I had to break out my Staedtler markers and do some watercoloring. I just wasn't happy with the pencils! Haha!

I added fun foam to the back of the scallop rectangles and popped them back in to place. The little bit of dimension adds some fun shadows and really highlights the spotlighting technique! Thanks for joining me!
