Keep Cool and announcement...

Hello all! Today I'm showing a card I made for the Lawnscaping Challenge blog.

The technique I decided to try finally is spotlighting or spotlight stamping... or at least that is what I've heard it referred to as. If you aren't sure what that is, it's stamping your images and only coloring the ones in the "spotlight" area in color.
Here is my card...

I first traced a circle where my spotlight area would be then stamped the images (making sure that each touched inside the circle). Once I was done with the stamping I started coloring. First with the inside of the spotlight carefully trying not to go over my pencil line. I then erased the pencil line and colored the rest of the images in using my grays. Maybe next time I'll use smaller images to fit things in the circle a little better to show off the bright colors more.

Before I go I wanted to let you know that I am now part of the Die Cut Divas design team!!! I'm so excited to be apart of their team you will see my first card for the blog on June 1st. Hope to see you there.

 Also I will be a part of an upcoming Lawnscaping blog hop towards the end of June so keep an eye for that as well! 
I'm over the moon excited for both of those adventures! 

Thanks for stopping by and have great day!
