Welcome to another Quick Card episode, where I aim to give you tips on getting a great card, fast.
Today’s quick card highlights spotlight coloring. This technique is so awesome because you can add a pop of color, but since you’re only coloring in part of an image, you’re finished in no time. It took me 18:11, but I think that it took me so long because I was also chatting at the same time. Oopsies.
To begin with, I gathered my supplies. An image, Obsessed With Floral, watercolors, an A2 sized piece of watercolor paper and a smaller strip for coloring.
I stamped the image onto my A2 piece of paper, then with my stamp still positioned in my Misti, laid down my strip, somewhere just right to center, and stamped again.
The strip is the piece that is colored or painted. After it’s painted, line up the strip with the A2 sized image, paying attention to how the edges of the colored image coordinated with the background image. For my card, I popped up this colored strip with foam tape.
This week I challenge you to try out spotlight coloring. Just leave your image black and white and pop up a section that has been colored. You can use a strip, circle or any other shape, the choice is yours. Be sure to post in the Unity Show and Tell group, on Facebook, to be eligible for prizes! Challenge open until February 21st.
