{Spotlight Project} Deepti Makes Use Of Tiny Stamps

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to my Spotlight feature. Today I am focusing on making use of the tiny stamp images. I decided to use tiny stamp images to build a bigger image. I made a birthday card using a little floral image. You can make variations to the same by using other images like stars, butterflies, hearts or even snowflakes for a winter card. You can also build some other image instead of a balloon... like a butterfly or a big star. Possibilities are endless. Let me show you...

Step 1 - I cut out balloons from a card stock that will serve as my stencils. You can use masking sheets too but I ran out, so I worked with what I had.

Step 2 - I then stamped the little floral image to build the balloon using Distress oxide inks, you can use any inks. I used these as they just got added to my stash ;)

Step 3 - I used the other balloon stencil to mask and ink a few more balloons around my focal floral balloon.

Step 4 - I used a gold pen to draw balloon strings and also added some gold dots on the balloon.

Here is a closeup into the card...

I have used:

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

Happy paper crafting!
