Wee & Whimsical Wednesday

Did you know that Inchie Squares make the spotlight technique virtually effortless? You can showcase a small section of your stamped image perfectly! Take a look at what I did with the Lockhart Tulips. First, I stamped the image with black ink on white paper. Next, I did it again, and determined where the spot was that I wanted to highlight. I colored that section with Copics and Shimmerz Pixie Dust Blingz, adhered it to the Inchie Square and adhered that to the image.

I chose to put the image on the inside of my card, allowing for a nice aperature card. Add some ink, a little embossing, and a sentiment with some ribbon, and you have a beautiful card in no time flat.

I hope this inspires you to pull out your Inchie Squares and make a beautiful card incorporating the spotlight technique. You will wow your friends (and only you will know how quickly it came together!).

Be well!

What a clever idea!! The cut-out and the partially colored inchie are unique. Can't wait to try it. Thanks!!
