Beloved Bouquet in Glacier, White Daisy and Silver

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post.  This week we are inviting you to use just 3 colors:  Glacier, White Daisy and Silver.

As I was reading through some old blog posts I came upon a new to me technique called spotlighting.  I found more information about it on the Gina K Designs blog here.  Instead of using a frame stamp I just pencil traced around different sized CTMH acrylic blocks and then later used the CTMH silver metallic marker to fill it in.  Here is my creation:

     White Daisy CS
     Glacier CS
     Beloved Bouquet January Stamp of the Month stamp
     Glacier Ink
     Silver Metallic Marker
     Silver Embossing powder 

Please check out what the rest of the awesome Design Team has to inspire you with this challenge here.  We hope you will find the time to create something and share it with us on the Color Dare blog.  If you don't have the exact colors you may use something similar.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie

I went through the tutorial and got a better understanding of the technique you used, thank you for sharing. I like this technique and your card is very pretty. Question, I don't want to purchase these large stamps or could you, or did you, use your acrylic blocks to make square and outline with black pen...will probably be a future experiment or layering.

Very nice card! Love how you stamped the images.

In response to your question Sue--I did not use a big frame stamp. I did trace around acrylic blocks before stamping. To finish it I used the Silver Metallic marker to color over the lines. I'm glad you liked it!

You did a great job of spotlighting on your card. It was clever to use the blocks as stencils!
