If you arrived at this page from an outside link I encourage you to visit the home page to see all that I have to offer. There are galleries, tutorials, templates, and more.
1. Select your image and stamp it onto two different pieces of card stock. Generally this is done on white card stock with black ink.|
2.One of the stamped images will be used as your background. Trim to desired size but do not color in the design. Mount this piece onto your card base.
3.Color in your design using your favorite coloring medium. (It is best to color a larger area than what you plan to cut out in step 4)
4.Select which areas you want to spotlight and cut them out. (Use rulers, stencils or templates... whatever works best for you.) (As a general rule of thumb your design will look more balanced if you use an odd number of spotlighted areas.)
5. Decide if you wish to outline the spotlighted area... this helps to make it visually stand out from the background... and use markers or gel pens to draw the lines.
6. Decide if you wish to keep your design flat or add height with a foam tape. Secure your colored spotlight sections over the background image, matching up the design exactly.
