Spotlight Technique

I'm pretty sure I like this technique. One reason I like it is because I only have to color part of the image. haha! It's really easy to do. Stamp your image twice. Choose the main theme of the image - the mouse and the fish, in thise case. On one image, color a square part, say 2"x2" like I did, and cut it out. Mat it and then mount it over the other image. Easy peasy. I've seen some people do the spotlight in two or three different places on one card. Wow. That would be pretty on a floral card or something like that, I think. I made this Easter card yesterday. It's for a swap. I made 4 of them. The stamp is the little egg in the bowl and I stamped it 5 times on cardstock, colored with Prismacolor pencils and then used a glaze pen to color the glass bowl. Oh, and I put a little tiny bit of sparkly glitter pen on the tips of the eggs. The inside of the card says something about being a good friend or a cracked egg or something silly.

I love the mousey card! I think it would even look neat with a giant plaid card where each square is a different color scheme. Fun times!
