JUGS #71 Spotlighting Technique challenge

Good Morning Ladies!

Once again the weekend is upon us and that means it's time for another challenge from Just Us Girls.  This week our hostest is Andrea and she has challenged us to this really cool technique called spotlighting.  It's a technique I've never tried before.  It is really cool and I love how my card turned out!  I thought this image was appropriate seeing I think just about everyone has had enough winter and is ready for a little touch of spring!  LOL!!!  This is a technique I will definitely be using more often!  I hope you get a chance to come and play with us this week!  Here is the tutorial for how to do this technique here!  So get busy ladies so I can swing by and take a peek at your projects!

Supplies:  PTI stamp set-All About You Additions, Spellbinders nestabilities-scallop circles, PTI-white and red card stock, Copic markers, Tim Holtz-mini paper clips, ribbons-misc. 

Don't forget to stop by the rest of the JUGS blogs and our
 February guest designer Lori for more inspiration!

  1. Kathryn, this card is AWESOME!!! I thought about using the exact same stamp set for this technique but changed my mind at the last minute. You're right, the set is perfect for this technique! And you ROCKED it!!! Such a cheery card that makes me smile! Great inspiration!

  2. What a great example of this technique! Perfect image...I think that's half the battle! And it's also the perfect Spring card to lift our spirits out of the dregs of winter! Very pretty card!

  3. Ooooh well done Kathryn - love the flowers and the bright pop of colors! You are right - a bit of spring - perfect for all of us snow-weary folks.
