1 Stamp, 3 Ways Spotlight card

I thought it would be fun to take one stamp and make three cards with a different feel to them. My first one uses revere spotlight coloring.

I started by cutting 3 white panels with a stitched rectangle die. I placed one of them in my Misti and arranged the flower stamp how I liked it. I stamped it in Gina K Amalgam ink. I left the flower mounted in the Misti and placed one more of the die cut panels in there and stamped it in the same place.  I took one of the stamped panels and cut a circle out of it, moving the die around until I liked the placement.

The third die cut rectangle was going to be used to pop up the top panel just a bit for dimension. So I used purple tape to tape the stamped panel with the circle cut out to the third panel. I put my circle die into the hole and ran it through the die cut machine. This way I had perfect placement of the hole in both panels.

I colored the flowers just where they were going to show through.
Copics used: R27, R29 and R59

Leaves were colored with Copic YG 63 & YG 67

Centers were Copic: Y23 & Y26

I gave what would show on the circle a shadow using B0000 and blending out with colorless blender

Once everything was colored, I adhered the top stamped panel to the blank panel lining up the edges and the circle cut out. I used a red Gamsai Tambi water color to add splatters. I wrapped a piece of organza ribbon around the bottom of that panel and mounted the sentiment over it. Then I adhered that stack to the colored panel, again making sure the outside edges were aligned.

I placed the stamped panels on red card stock and mounted them to a card base. The picture below gives an idea of how added that middle panel gave it some dimension.

Supplies used:

Gansai Tambi water colors
Stitched Rectangle Die
