This is for the Mini VSN Spotlight On Ice challenge.
The challenge was to feature one's favorite olympic game using the spotlight technique. When I read the challenge, I had immediately in mind this cute Peanuts stamp...
I know that the original spotlight technique leaves the main image monochromatic and colors only the spotlight piece, but I considered it such a pity to leave Charlie Brown monochromatic... guess he would have got a severe depression if I did that, LOL! So i cheated a little bit and colored everything, nevertheless, there's a spotlight, isn't it?! I used all the olympic colors in my image (yeah, where's the yellow??? Take a close look on Charlie's cap!), and I added some Stickles for the snow - hard to be seen on the photo. And because it is hard to see as well: The tab on top of the card says "Snowball Fight", and the epoxy sticker says "Sleigh Ride".
I hope you have the same fun looking at this card I had when creating it...

Most definitely there's a spotlight technique going on her, Christiane. Oh, please dont acknowledge taking license with the challenge. It's really whatever you perceive as being the guidelines. I happen to love this guy colored~ how else would I know it's Snoopy? This sort of reminds me of your youtube dog video with all that snow everywhere. Wonderfully fun card, my friend.
