Focus on tulips

Here's a card with a new technique that I learned on the VSN weekend - Spyglass.  The idea is to not color the whole image but to focus on just one spot and color that spot.  I think it makes a nice statement.


The image is from Penny Black - Blooming Tulips from way back in 1998.  I stamped the image twice.  The big one I mounted on deep yellow card stock and the other I chose just the spot I wanted to highlight and colored it with Copics.  I cut out a circle using my Spellbinders small circles and mounted it on another circle of the purple card stock.  The focus spot is popped-up and placed exactly where it belongs on the larger image.

I got the lace from my local Scrapbook store and the pearls from Prima.  The base card is Very Vanilla from SU.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
