I tried out an old technique with my MISTI. It is kind of a meld of two techniques actually-the spotlight technique and triple layering (though I only did two layers-hence more of a spotlight effect).
|I laid a large piece of paper down then my image piece with a second piece layered where I want the spotlight-I used a temporary glue dot to hold this in place and a magnet to hold the image piece in place|
|I used the scribble on acetate method for my coloring dipping a wet brush to pick up the colors.|
|I added white shimmer paint highlights. When I dropped a small glob onto my nice white space, I decided to spatter the whole front though it is hard to see in the photo.|
|I really wanted my butterfly to have depth so I used Smoky Slate, Soft Sky and then Sahara Sand around the edge of my butterfly.|
|Here's the final card. I kept it very CAS only adding a little silver cord and my sentiment. I layered over a black panel and then a Pool Party base|
|Here's a side shot to show off the shimmer and the depth of the outlining.|
|Here's a look at the layering.|
