A Favorite Technique with Sweet Stamps

Happy Tuesday !!
Today I have a card for this week's challenge at Sweet Stamps

Our Challenge for this week is

A Favorite Technique

share your favorite technique with the team

Each week Sweet Stamps has a new challenge and although you are not required to use a Sweet Stamp, if you have some we would love for you to use them and you will receive a second entry into our draw.


Our prize each week to one lucky winner is a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Store for use on any of our lovely rubber stamps.

 
One of my favorite techniques for a CAS card is to use  the Spotlight Technique
I love the pop of color that this technique gives on white cards, using the same color as my matting for my image. 
The stamp I chose to share today is the Christmas Rose Candle (7075H), inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink I stamped it twice ontop white sheen card stock, using a small circle die I cut the portion of the roses out and colored with Copic, (Rosey Red Blending set &Spring Leaf Blending set) matted with the next size circle and then adhered over the printed image . I then added my sentiment using the curved sentiment Merry Christmas Curved (991D)
