Sending Hugs Your Way

TGIF everyone!  I’m here along with some of the Bloom Brigade gals from Power Poppy today to share some card & colouring love with you!

Don’t forget to play along with the latest (and greatest!) Power & Spark Challenge this month.   It’s an easy one too!  All you have to do is colour using a medium that you haven’t used in awhile… yup… as simple as that.  To check out all the challenge deets, click hereOh… and you don’t need a Power Poppy image to play along BUT if you’d like to give one a whirl right away, then check out all the amazing digital options here.

Today I was inspired to create a VERY simple card using the spotlight technique.

First I took a panel of water colour paper and stamped my image in a grey ink and then took it to my Big Shot and cut the frame out.  I took just the inner panel from the frame and used my inexpensive Yarka semi-moist water colours to paint on the colour and voila….
My card features the stunning "Daffodils" stamp set and that sweet little sentiment is included!

Here’s a close up my card.  I actually popped up the frame using 2 more die cuts of thick water colour paper to boost it up.

Now, off you go and check out what the amazing Bloom Brigade has put together for you today…

Love the soft look with the colors you used and the outer part not colored gives a very cool look :)

Oh, Ally, I just love the soft watercoloring, and I really also love the die cutting with a sort of spotlight technique! You are amazing and so creative, my friend! Warm hugs!

This is great. Almost a "spy glass" effect. Love the idea. Thanks.
