I smooshed my watercolor panel onto a craft mat that I had sprinkled with Brushos Crystal Color and spritzed/wetted. Then, to add some large, impressionistic bold flowers, I added more Brushos through a stencil. I did some stamping, masking and heat embossing with the butterfly and flower stamps. Then, I did a combination partial die-cutting with a HLS Butterfly Die and also some fussy cutting to cut out the butterflies and flowers. I attached all of the pieces of the panel, including the cut-out pieces, in puzzle-like fashion, onto the front of a card base. I added foam tape to the flower/butterfly puzzle pieces. I added white details with a gel pen. I stamped the Sending Hugs (Doodle Flowers) sentiment on black cardstock. I heat embossed and fussy cut that. I hope that you are inspired and that you going to enjoy joining in too!
I stamped the sentiment, did some fussy cutting and added the chevron butterfly panel to the card front with foam tape.

P.S. This week’s challenge theme reminds me of this hymn:
I used the “spotlight” technique. Maybe I should say “spotlights?”
I had fun creating my own background stamp using HLS’ Butterfly Birthday, Mix Mash and Doodled Flowers. I adhered a bunch of stamps to my stamp press all at once, inked the stamps up with a dark brown ink and then stamped multiple panels.
I colored one panel with alcohol markers and then die cut several circles.I attached the spotlights to the uncolored panel. I added a dark blue mat and a Kraft card base.
