Spotlighted Christmas for JAI #675


Happy Friday everyone and welcome back! I hope you've had a good week? This time of year is so busy and in the midst of it all there is a lot going on in the world. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe wherever they may be.

This week at Just Add Ink, lovely Lou has suggested we Just Add the Spotlight Technique.
As always, our fabulous design team have created a number of different cards to inspire you, so we'd love for you to join us.

I created two similar cards for this challenge using a reverse Spotlight Technique. This was very fun to do.

For both cards, I started by embossing an image that was of an outline - I chose a Christmas Tree. One was embossed in white, the other in silver.
Next, the image was stamped on masking paper and cut out and applied over the image.
After this, the page was covered with ink - all except what was under the mask which remained white and clean.
When the mask was removed, the white of the inside of the image is spotlighted against all the colour of the background.

Finally, a sentiment was stamped and embossed on a strip of card stock that also was sponged with colour. The embossed sentiments resisted the colour and remain white, like the insides of the image.

Silver twine, glimmer paper and sequins complete both cards.

Thanks for stopping by this week and I hope that you can pop on over to Just Add Ink and join in the challenge. I always look forward to seeing your projects!
