Spotlight Technique

Today on the challenge blog
our challenge is
the Spotlight Technique.

If you are unsure of what this technique is
you can find samples on Pinterest HERE
and a tutorial on You Tube HERE.

But basically, you stamp your image,
then stamp it again, coloring only the small section you
want to 'spotlight'.

You then use a circle die or whatever you prefer
to cut it out.   You can die cut a bit larger to circle from
black card stock to go under if you wish.
I didn't do that as my next size circle die was just too big,
so I just ran my black Copic around the circle edge
to highlight it a bit more.
Then simply line it up with your uncolored image...easy!!

To finish I added a scrap of pink card stock underneath, a few sequins
and a small twine bow.
I also added a bit of shimmer to the flower centers.

To see more of this technique done by the Design Team,
please visit our blog
we would LOVE to have you join us!

Pretty pretty! I love the stamp. I've never done this technique as it's hard for me to not color the whole thing. The twine and sequins finish it of cutely and scatter some color throughout.
