Spotlight Technique (click here to view my blog)

Made by Crystal
Here's what you could do with this layout.  Color the large flower in the square.  This serves as a spotlight of the whole design of the card.  Crystal colored the flower with the new Watercolor Pencils and used the Aquapainter to blend the colors.  Then she used the Clear Wink of Stella.  It makes a lovely card!

Stamp Club Challenge Addition (click here to view my blog)

 
Here is an additional card made by Sandra Larson in our Stamp Club Card Challenge for February.  I inadvertently missed posting Sandra's beautiful card.  My apologies go to Sandra.  It is a great example of paper piecing and makes a very pretty and elegant card.  I'm so glad to share this card with you today!
