Default F4A389 - "In the Spotlight" - 08/04/17

F4A389 - "In the Spotlight" - 08/04/17

This is an OOOOOllllld technique. I have actually found a LOT of inspiration by looking back at photos of my "old" cards (mostly for layouts!)!! It's fun to see how far we've come, AND how much stuff is coming back around again!

This week's challenge is to "spotlight" one area of your card with some sort of frame ... any shape will do!! The trick is to make an actual "frame" (something that goes OVER the image, not something that the image goes on top of!)!!! Get it??? Got it???? GOOD!!!

My Sample:

Spotlight Bouquet

Keyword: F4A389

F4A389 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Good to revisit some old techniques that we(I) forget about. I like the twist that you added. Thanks.

I've always wanted to try spotlighting, but as I feared the hardest part for me was feeling like I had left my project "half done!!" . . .Here's my attempt at spotlighting:

I like this different take on the Spotlighting technique. Much easier now that we have all sorts of nesting die cut shapes. I combined this challenge with yesterday's "ways to use it" challenge to make a card that's all about shoes. Bonded with my stamp-a-ma-jig to get all the rows of shoes and added a little micro glitter bling to the straps of the spotlighted shoes. Thanks for the challenge and thanks for looking.
