Spotlight Sunset

Many of you probably remember the technique called Spotlighting.  It is a great card technique when time is short and you need a special card.   It is also a perfect way to color an image where the details are too tiny on the image.

One way is to stamp the image on your cardstock.  Cut out a frame and place it down on top of your image, coloring only inside the frame.  It's fun if you place the frame at different angles.  Make sure you glue the frame down first before you color!

The other way is to stamp the image twice.  Once on the card itself and the other image is on a white cardstock.  You can use a nestability to cut out what part you want to color on the image.  You color the piece you cut out and glue it down on top of the image or pop it up with pop dots.  Now cut a frame out of coordinating cardstock and glue that down over the section you colored.  This is the way that I did my cards except I did not pop them up.

These make great masculine cards!
