Anyway onto my card. I tend to shy away from black and white challenges 'cos I am rubbish at colouring in with greys and blacks but the DT on Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge have used colour on their images so thought it would be okay if I did too!!
I am also entering it into the following challenges:
Bah Humbug - Stockings
ABC Christmas Challenge - Hotspot or Spotlight Technique
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Ribbon and Gems
I really enjoyed making this card, it took me out of my comfort zone but I think that's a good thing sometimes, isn't it. I haven't tried this spotlight technique before but think it is very effective and will definitely try it again. I've used this lovely Mo Manning image 'Pammy's Stocking' and coloured the spotlight bit with Promarkers and added a bit of glamour dust to the top of the stocking. The backing papers are from Summer Driggs 'Year to Shine' kit and the stripey paper is Charcoal Prints from Dovecraft. The large snowflake is a Cuttlebug die and the little one a Sizzix die cut. The ribbon and gems are from my stash and the sentiment is from The Clear Art Stamps Impressions kit.
