Spotlight Rose

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello friends, Roni here with a lovely vintage Rose using the Spotlight Technique for the Yellow and Orange Challenge.

The rose was stamped onto an vintage book page using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink, the image was stamped a second time on a scrap of white cardstock. This panel was matted with yellow and affixed to an orange card blank.

I determined which sections of the rose I wanted to spotlight and die cut those areas from the second image.  Those areas were then colored using Inktense watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.  Each of the colored spotlight circles were then mounted onto the original rose image so they lined up perfectly. A few dots of irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress (white) was added to finish off the card.

Now it's your turn.  Are you up for our challenge?  Link your creations to the Orange and Yellow Challenge and you might just be the lucky winner of Lost Coast Designs & Carmen's Veranda stamps!
