Spotlight Stamping

I had some time the other day to have a little play in the craft room.
Looking around for a little inspiration I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, colours at Altenew and spotlight stamping technique at the  Flower challenge and combined them in this card.

I used a selection of flowers from Altenew's Beautiful Day and Remember This to stamp a spray in Espresso Truffle then embossed with a WOW semi dull EP, as I was going to use my Zig pens to colour.
After stamping on my panel of linen effect card I used a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis square die to cut out the panel. To keep the tiny bits in place, I added some double sided tape to the back of the die cut before removing the card from the die. Using the colours from this months challenge at Altenew, I watercoloured the blooms on the die cut with my Zigs, then glued it to another black fun foam die cut. The uncoloured layer was glued flat onto a white base card before adding back the raised up panel.
