Morning! I have a simple card to share today using the spotlight coloring technique in a more selective way! I love this gorgeous cosmos background stamp from Simon Says Stamp but decided to use it try to focus on just a few flowers rather than the entire background!
I used my MISTI to stamp the stamp onto a piece of white cardstock using copic-friendly intense black ink. Then I chose two flowers to color and used my RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21, and RV00 markers to color the petals. I always struggle with leaving white space when I color but these petals are nice and big and perfect for practicing! And by coloring only some of the flowers I think it really draws your eyes to those pops of pink!
I wanted to finish the card subtly so I die-cut the sentiment from dark red cardstock and coated it with a layer of versamark and clear embossing powder. I repeated the process twice to get a thick, shiny look. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a black card base. Then I added a thin strip of black glitter paper near the bottom of the panel and adhered the sentiment over it! It’s noticeable but doesn’t detract from the pretty pink flowers! I hope this gives you some ideas for your big background stamps! Thanks for visiting and have a great day! 🙂

Beautiful, I’m partial to cosmos flowers since it was the first flower I grew from seed! Lol!
