I would like to welcome a new follower to my blog - something I will be doing in the future.
Sid joined my followers recently - he is from England, and his blog is called Harpies Crafty Corner. Sid is a talented crafter and displays work using many different techniques.
This was the second card that I taught at class this month. Spotlighting is not a new technique, but I must admit it was the first time I had used it.
The stamps I used are from Prickly Pear which I received from Michelle Pearson in a RAK a long time ago, and this is the first time it has seen ink.
I inked it up with espresso ink, stamped the area I wanted to spotlight on a scrap, and then die cut the circle where I wanted the spotlight to be.
I coloured the selected area with prisma coloured pencils - I love these as you can layer and blend the colours to get a really rich finish. The rim of the cornucopia was painted with gold ink from the Delecata golden glitz ink pad.
After stamping the sentiment, I sponged the edges of both the image panel and the base with bamboo shoot ink after rounding the corners. Before mounting the feature panel, I wound some green bakers twine around one end of it for a touch more colour.
