and I have chosen the theme of.....
I think a lot of people are put off this theme because of leaving some areas black and white... so hopefully in this card below it shows that you don't necessarily have to do that... also below is a short tutorial.
In this card I have mounted the circle with 3D Foam pads to make it stand out.... the paper was a freebie with magazine..
If you have never heard of the technique it is really easy....
1. Stamp or Print out the same image twice.... if using digital images make sure they are both same size.
2. Cut or Punch out a Circle of one of the images.
3. Now you can either leave the circle black and white and colour the other image ... or do the reverse... colour the spotlight and leave the rest of the image black and white.. or you can colour both if you wish... it's up to you... and the main thing is that you have fun!
4. If you mount the spotlight on 3D pads it really makes the spotlight stand out...
The spotlight doesn't have to be a circle - it could be any shape that you wish....
The technique works really well on tags and I think they look quite cool.... and very quick to make when you are in a rush for Christmas....
I enjoyed making both the card and tags ... I hope that they inspire you to have a go at this technique....
