Spotlight technique classes

This was a quiet month for classes. However it gave me the time to get my new studio organised. The ladies that came thoroughly enjoyed the technique of Spotlighting and Reverse Spotlighting.

As usual I loved all the samples I made for the classes and couldn't decide which one the ladies should do so, I let them choose.  Here was their first choice, this is reverse spotlighting. Reverse spotlighting is achieved by highlighting part of your image by punching a window and layering a stamped image underneath. In this first card we created several punched out windows using the Hexagon die. We stamped some bees and then stamped the bees again on to Crushed Curry card and cut them out. We then layered several of the bees underneath.

For the next Reverse spotlight card, we used our flowers. So different from the first but very pretty. Each of the ladies that chose to do this card used different colours and it was very interesting to see the dramatic differences in soft and bright colours.

The next card, and yes, yet again another choice. Soft spotlighting and framed spotlighting. The soft one is achieved by punching or ripping out a shape and colouring it in. This is then glued directly over the stamped image. Such a lovely soft and delicate image is achieved.

So pretty, but then so is this one. I love the framed spotlight, which is your favourite?

Our final card was clean and simple. Stamp an image in Basic Gray and then punch a circle and stamp on the circle in a colour. This got popped up with a dimensional. Very simple and quick to do. I love this technique, how about you?
