Wheelin' Good Time

I recently did a workshop for a group of ladies focusing on wheels. I have the first one for you today. It focused on the "spotlighting" technique. Spotlighting is pretty simple. You simply focus your coloring on a part of your image. In this case I rolled the "Kindness" Jumbo Wheel onto two pieces of Whisper White cardstock. The first piece goes onto the project. Using circle punches, punch out several random places on the second piece. Color in the image on the punched circles. Mat the circles onto cardstock punched slightly larger. When mounting the circles onto your project line them up with the original image.
This technique can be done with wheels or regular stamp images. It is a fun way to showcase the image without coloring in the entire thing. I finished mine off with a simple mat and piece of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. The card is 6x3 and yes, Stampin' Up! sells envelopes to fit this size.

This project was part of a home workshop focusing on wheels. If there is a product you are interested in learning more about, simply ask your demonstrator if they can create a workshop for you.
