The Flower Challenge #16 January 2018 Reminder

It's time for a another card for the Flower Challenge #16. It's half way through the challenge
and the team have all done another card to remind you how easy it is to make a card using the 'Spotlight Stamping' technique.

For my card I have used this wonderful stamp from Simon Says. It took me ages to get this stamp as I had to wait till a company that I bought through carried it so I didnt have to pay high postage. I have seen this stamp coloured so many different ways and have already done so myself and cant wait to share in future posts.

Spotlight Stamping here means minimal colouring. I stamped the image on the front of the card. then cut out a section of the image with a circle die with the stitched edge. I then coloured the cut out piece with Copics and once finished glued it back in place. So simple and yet so eye catching. I love this idea.

Now its time to see what the rest of the design team has done at The Flower Challenge and see if their designs can get you inspired. We would love to see your cards entered in our challenge this month.

Thanks so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.
