Hope you've had a fab week!
Sooooo...its 10am on Saturday morning....that means one thing...its time for a fab new challenge from My Time to Craft! This week we have a technique challenge for you....and I have to confess that this is a new technique for me, so already in 2013 I have learnt something new!!
The technique is called spotlighting....and it gives a rather fab effect.....
Isn't that a fab finish....I think the spotlight really highlights the pretty image.
To create this finish yourself you simply need to pick an image and stamp it twice....the main image you leave black and white. The second image you need to punch out a circle which you'd like to highlight and colour that part of the image. You then frame your coloured image circle and stick it onto of your black and white image in the correct place. Ta-dah!
I'm not sure whether that explanation makes any sense or not! It does in my head.....but my head can be a very crazy place!!
This is a from Kanban, and I have coloured my highlighted part with a selction of pastel coloured Promarkers. I have also added a little bit of sparkle to this part of the image. I then went mad with my pastel papers to create the background, adding the doily and my Happy Birthday sentiment.
To see more examples of the spotlighting technique pop by the My Time to Craft challenge blog and see all the gorgeous cards that my fellow teamies have made....then why not give it a try yourself!
I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
