I've seen this Spotlight Technique done on numerous blogs and was inspired to give it try.
Of course, I've added my own twist to it.
I hope you will find this tutorial useful.
Below are step-by-step details on how I completed my image on this card.
But first, I want to talk a bit about my latest project.
I've colored her with PrismaColor pencils and Copic Sketch markers.
Papers are from Prima and K&Co. The circle doily is from Martha Stewart.
At the top corner is a scroll that I made with clay and have added a crackle finish for that aged look.
Here are the materials I use to making my Spotlight image:
- Magnolia Stamp - Bubbling Tilda
- Ink Pad
- Glass Pebbles
- Fiskars Circle Punch
- Ranger Glossy Accent
This is the way I achieve my Spotlight Technique...
Step 1 -Coloring
- Stamp two images
- Color one complete image in grayscale
- Color the second image where you want the Spotlight on
Step 2 - Punch-Out
- Take your circle punch and place over your colored image
- Punch-out all the desire Spotlights
Step 3 - Making "bubbles"
- Add a small amount of Glossy Accent on your punch-out image
- Gently place the glass pebble on the circle image with the Glossy Accent as the adhesive
Step 4 - Final Image
- Take the pebbles and carefully place on the black and white image.
- Once you are satisfy with the placement of the pebbles, adhere with some glue and you are finish.
There you have it! The image is now ready to be added to your project.
Again, there are many blogs and video on how to get this look, this is just my version of it.
I hope you found this tutorial useful.
