The first week back from vacation is always a hard one and my work load was really heavy. I’m happy it’s Friday and I can take a little break because next week will be very busy as well.
Here’s my TCC card for this week; I picked the Bertie and Friend image. I have wanted to work with this one for a while and thought it was perfect for the highlighting technique. The technique is very easy to do and gives some eye popping results.
I used black cardstock and a silver metallic paper with black accents so the colours would really pop.
I printed out the image twice (love those digi stamps!) and used my nesties to cut out specific parts of the image. I like the highlighting to be a little off centre, it’s a little more interesting. For example, take a look at the butterfly. It would be very easy to have the whole butterfly in the circle and it would have a completely different effect.
I popped up the highlights on dimensionals for a little more oomph.
Want to try it yourself? Head on over to The Character Cafe Store and put this image in your shopping cart- it’s so versatile!
Make sure to hop around to see what the other DT members created for us to ogle at :)
Ciao for now,
