Hello Friend

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing a card that I created for the Addicted to CAS Challenge which is to create a card using Inlaid Die(s).
For my card I used the Concord & 9th stamp set, Wildflower and stamped only two of the images from the set on to watercolor paper, the stem and flower stamps.  After stamping my images, I used circle dies in three different sizes and die cut circles from my stamped panel.  On these circles I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brushes and an aqua brush to watercolor in some color.  Only adding color to the circles is the Spotlighting technique. The only color I added to the main panel other than the circles was to use a silver glitter pen on the stems and stamens of the flowers.  Next I adhered my stamped panel onto black cardstock adding the circles back in place and used foam tape to pop up the whole panel and added it to my white card base.  To finish off my card, I stamped my sentiment from the MFT Label Maker Sentiments and added some silver sequins.
Thank you so much for your visit today!

So pretty! I must have read your "how to" three times and I still don't understand how you put this beauty together! But I love it!

WOW! WOW! WOW! This looks absolutely wonderful. I think this is the nicest spot light card I have seen. I will be giving your version a try when I get a chance. I am now a bit annoyed with myself that I didn't buy that set with my last order and now, due to overspending elsewhere on other stamping "essential", it will be on my wish list! :-) TFS

I love this. It was inspired to stamp the lined flower in black and just add that bit of color. TFS. Daria
