Think Spring

The image 1053-S The Boys (stick robots) was the perfect image to showcase the “Spotlight Technique.”  This technique is accomplished by stamping the image twice.  Take one of the images and using a circle punch choose a portion of the image to punch out.  In this case, I colored the image inside the circle with Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol, and added some googly eyes.  After coloring the punched out portion, line it up and adhere on top of the first unpunched image.  

The tulips were cut using the Cricut, and made a nice spring garden for the robots.  The layered ribbon adds some wonderful texture.  The red ribbon was actually white, but I inked it up with red ink to match the paper and robots perfectly. 

~Happy Spring~
