Have you ever tried spotlighting? It’s a stamping and colouring technique where you set aside a section of your stamping to be coloured leaving the rest uncoloured. In the case of solid stamping, the areas that would usually be left blank are stamped in a neutral colour.
For my card, I cut a tag just using my paper trimmer so it would be the perfect size for my card front. Starting at the top left, I placed my Altenew Floral Shadow stamps on the base white cardstock. I arranged them all so each stamp was on both the base and the tag leaving a bit in the center for the sentiment. I stamped each stamp first in grey on the base in my MISTI then I aligned the tag on the grid paper using some repositionable adhesive and stamped on it using Altenew coloured ink.
Using the MISTI makes a card like this so much easier. I have made one like it using a T-shaped stamp positioning tool but it was so much harder! Gotta love my MISTI. I also have the Tim Holtz stamp positioner but I mostly use it with rubber cling stamps. When the stamping was all done, I popped the tag up on some fun foam after adding an eyelet and some fibres.
