Challenge #78 is a THEME challenge of Love and/or Friendship with the Optional Technique Twist of the "Spotlight Stamping" technique in which you add color only to one raised spot on your image. There are many tutorials available online like THIS one from Splitcoast Stampers and THIS one from MFT Challenge and Inspiration Blog.
The following sponsors are celebrating with us on their blogs-click on the links below to check out their parties:
Ardyth of MASKerade is our Guest Designer for both the challenge and reminder posts. Ardyth's work is amazing, and you are sure to be very inspired when you stroll through her blog.
Here is my take:
The main image is an Impression Obsession wood mounted stamp from deep within my stash - Flower Pitchers. I love this image, and it is wonderful for water coloring. I stamped it twice, colored the top section with Zigs, cut out a heart shape with Stampin' Up's Heart To Heart Punch and popped it up. I added a sentiment using Simon Says Stamp YOU, distressed the edges of the top panel, mounted it on purple card stock and adhered it to the card base.
