Floral Card - Hugs

Hello Everyone,

Today I am here with a card where I have tried a new technique, the Spotlight Technique.
This is a technique where only part of the image on the card is in a spotlight. And this is my take on it.

This is a card of size 6.25 * 5 inches. I tried to make a floral arrangement at two corners of the card. Now I stamped these images in black ink, by masking the images where needed. I die cut the card front at the center. Following the Spotlight Technique I decided to colour the images which are in the die cut rectangular portion. Added some shadows to the flower images and then I added glossy accents at the center of the flowers to add some dimension. I have die cut the sentiment in golden colour. Since I did not have a golden colour cardstock, I adhered some washi tape on a cardstock piece and die cut the sentiment. Then I adhered the center portion of the card with a foam and rest of it with white glue, to the card base, Finished the card with sequins and added glitter to the images with a clear glitter pen.

Hope you like the card. Supplies used are listed at the end.
