About 3 years ago the New Design Club stamp (No. 44) was a ballerina and one of the projects that Barbara did for it was a brayered spotlight. I've been wanting to have a go at it since I got it, but as I've not had anyone to send a ballerina card to I never got around to it. As soon as I saw the Jazz Man I knew that he would be perfect for it and couldn't wait to have a go.
When Barbara did hers she used a Big and Juicy ink pad in Mountain Meadow. I thought I'd have a go at doing it in black. It took quite a bit of brayering to build up the colour but I was really pleased with how it turned out. It only took one go too!
I used one of my Spellbinders Petite Ovals dies to cut out a mask for the white part of the spotlight and built up the black and grey around it using Adirondack Pitch Black on Claritycard. My Splodge Mat is a great help for things like this.
The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with silver detail powder.
Once I'd finished that I made a matching background by covering a sheet of Clarity paper with the Jazz Montage stamp.
