In the Spotlight!


Hi everyone!

It is time for another challenge over on the Alota Rubber Stamps Paper Craft Planet Group. This week the challenge is hosted by Marie Carlsson. You have two weeks from today to participate in this challenge and you also have a chance of winning some wonderful stamps if you card is selected randomly from all the entries received.

So what’s the challenge …Spotlighting! I guess that isn’t a big surprise when you look at my card right hehe. I used the new Cindy Bug to create my card today … this is named after fellow Alota Rubber Stamps Design Team Member Cindy Haffner … doesn’t she look so cute as a bug hehe!

To create the spotlight technique … I stamped my image twice onto white card. I punched out a circle using my circle punch from one of the images and this is the image I colored in. I then layered this to a black circle and attached it over my full image of Cindy Bug.

For the layout of my card I used a SFYTT sketch challenge from 4th July.

I was looking for an idea for a swap card and this technique will work fantastically! Really do love the black circle under the "spotlight".
