Hello everyone, it has been a few days since I have posted anything, so I thought I would post a technique I am going to do at a friends workshop on Thursday. This technique is called spotlighing and is real easy and you get an elegant looking card. I made this a while back at one of my uplines workshops. Sorry such a short post but I have a lot of running to do today. I will try and post the directions for spotligting yet today. thanks for visiting and Please leave a comment.

Spotlighting Technique

by Beate Johns

This technique is great to spotlight part of your image. It's a fun way to use detailed stamps and only color part of of the image.


  • Two paper punches or cutting system that gives you nested shapes

  • Outline image stamp

  • Coloring mediums (here Aqua painter and waterbased ink)
  • Cardstock (here Shimmery White)

  • Black Stazon™


  1. Step 1

    Stamp the main image in Black Stazon™ ink.

  2. Step 2

    Stamp the part of the image that will be highlighted again, this time on a smaller piece of cardstock.

  3. Step 3

    Punch out the part of the image that will be highlighted.

    (Or use a cutting system to cut it out.)

  4. Step 4

    Color in the punched image.

  5. Step 5

    Adhere image to a slightly bigger, colored cardstock punch out.

    This will draw attention to the image.

  6. Step 6

    Line up the layered punch out over the main image and tape down.

  7. Step 7

    Finish your card.

There got the spotlighting technique from scs. Hope you all give it a try they are so fun and the results are fantastik!!! Until next time... God bless
