spotlight - spotlights and sloshing

The "spotlight" technique has been around for ages. I think it's totally trendy these days with the popularity of the illustrated look in designs.

Here's a card I created using the spotlight technique. Check out my Spotlight project over on the STAMPlorations blog if you're interested in the details.


I'm going to be missing around here for a bit. Dad is in the hospital with heart problems and will be undergoing surgery. I needed to get myself over to MI so crafting will be on hold for the next few weeks. Your thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated. For Mom too!

Please do come back at the end of the month for the STAMPlorations 2nd Birthday Blog Hop!
