spotlight technique

the "spotlight" is made by stamping the image in black on a card front and leaving it uncolored. next step is to stamp the image again on cardstock and choose a small area of the stamp to "spotlight". this is done with a 1 inch circle punched out of a part of the image, and matting that on a black cardstock 1 1/4 inch circle .....coloring only that small piece and placing it on the larger image with a pop-dot (over the same area). for extra dimension i added a jelly circle....but you could also use crystal accents to give it a shine.

this, and many of the techniques i use, can be found on in the resource section.
