In the spotlight!


I'm here today with my card for Tuesday Throwdown!  We've been set a real challenge this week! We were asked to use the spotlight technique!

Well I hadn't even heard of this technique before so with the help of Mr Google I got myself armed with my circle punch. For simple people like my the aim is to simply highlight one part of the image.  If you check out the TT blog there are some fab links!

We also had a super sponsor who let us all choose a beautiful image to work with.  It took me ages to choose the images are so lovely

Here's my card:

I was really quite pleased with how I coloured the first image so was a bit sad when I had to punch a big circle out of it!  I really have no idea where this paper is from as I've had it for about 2 years - just lurking in my drawer!   The very lovely Live Laugh Love ribbon was actually recycled from some packing at Christmas!

I hope you can join us for our challenge - it was nice to have a go at something completely different!
