FMS240 + JUGS347 + Seize the Birthday

I found myself with some unexpected free time yesterday and snuck into the office to play with an idea to combine the Freshly Made Sketches #240 with the Just Us Girls #347 Trend Week: Spotlighting Technique.




The Waffle Flower succulent image is stamped on two white panels, with one carefully & selectively die cut to give me the four smaller panels. Two of the panels are colored with Inktense pencils before they are assembled over the second stamped white panel.




For a little extra dimension, the two colored panels are adhered with thin foam squares raising them slightly higher than the other panels.




A Papertrey Ink sentiment finishes the card off. This is my first time trying the Spotlight Technique and I am really happy with the results.

I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday where the current challenge has SUNSHINE as the Topping. I could stretch the sunshine idea to succulents being the flowers of sunshine states, but think this belongs in the Anything Goes option.

  


Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
