{Spotlight Project} Deepti Creates a Colorful Camouflaged Effect!

Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Today I am showcasing how to create a colorful camouflaged piece on a black and white background.

So, here's a look into the finished card:

I started out by adhering a wood grain patterned paper panel across a white card stock panel. Then I stamped the dogwood stamp from Floral Bliss several times in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

 Then I used a tag die to die-cut a tag from this stamped panel. I then colored the flowers on the tag with markers.

Next, I adhered the base panel on the card base with glue tape runner and adhered the tag with some foam dots after stamping the sentiment and tying a twine.

Here's the finished card up close :)

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try.  Happy paper crafting!
