Jenny Giraffe and the Spotlight Technique

>> Friday, August 28, 2009

I just love Jenny Giraffe. Her face and smile are so adorable! I just had to use this sentiment. I used the spotlighting technique. It's great to focus in on one thing, which is what I was after for this sentiment. I stamped Jenny twice. I used a 1 3/4 size circle punch to punch out the head from the second image, colored it with Copics, and finally, I taped it to the first image. I used faux stitching wtih a paper piercer, template, and a marker. I also sponged the creamy caramel Top Note die with creamy caramel ink to get a darker shade to coordinate with the Copic marker. You can see more spotlight cards using DRS Designs stamps:
