Spotlight Cards

There is a challenge on MFPSpeedyTV to use the Spotlight Technique this week.  If you don’t know what the Spotlight Technique is, here’s an example:

The image is stamped in one color, with no coloring done, then a section is stamped again, colored and placed on top of the original image.

This one is similar, except that I used one image a few times and only colored one of those images to spotlight it.

I really like the way this one turned out.  The same coffee cup is stamped in light pink twice, then overlaid by the colored image.  (Signs of Autumn set by Gina K. Stamps, Sakura glaze pen, clear glitter glue, White Opal Liquid Pearls for the foam, tan and brown Bic Mark-It markers, snowflake embossing folder by Cuttlebug, Celebrate It Basic Narrows ribbon, Angel Pink Memento Ink)

This last one is Reverse Spotlighting.  I colored the main image, then spotlighted a section without color.

This one’s a bit different, but still kind of interesting.  (Signs of Autumn set by Gina K., Memento ink in Cottage Ivy and Bamboo Leaves, Koh-i-Noor Woodless colored pencils, Recollections paper)

The Spotlight Technique is simple to do and adds a unique look to a card or project.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!
