Spotlight with a color twist Tutorial by Jeanne

Hello High Hopes fans!!

If you are looking for our current challenge, click here.

It's Tutorial Tuesday Time.
This week we have a Spotlight with a color twist Tutorial by Jeanne Streiff.

This technique is normally done with a white background. I'm not much of a rule follower so I thought it would be fun with a colored background. Just a little hint... I tried it against assorted patterned papers and decided it made the image cut out pop more against a very simple background.

Step 1: Position your stamps on a large clear block. Stamp images on both white and patterned paper.
Step 2: Cut out part of the image (I used a Spellbinders die, but you could use a punch or even a stencil to cut)
Step 3: Color images within the oval cut out area.

Step 4: Stamp alligator
Step 5: Color and cut out alligator (set aside)
Step 6: Adhere stamped pattern paper piece to card back.
Step 7: Align images of the colored image panel and attach to card.
Step 8: Finish card by stamping sentiment, adding twine and attaching alligator with foam tape.

Products used:

Other: Promarkers (0727, 0324, 0555, 0427, Y126, Y724, Y635, G629, Blender), foam tape, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), twine

Why not try it out?!

We will be back next week with a new challenge.
