Ok as promised I've posted this week using the "spotlight" technique.
What you do is stamp one image and leave it uncolored, stamp a second image of the same thing then using a punch (any size/color) you punch the area you want to spotlight. All you do after that is color it and attach it to the original image aligning the colored image with the uncolored one. On my card I used the Fall Harvest stamp, a label from the card label set, the stripes from the background basics 2 set and a Happy Birthday stamp.
Oh and P.s. a little life saver is the Stick em up for grabbing those pesky little embellishments.
I did the same technique with the moon area of the stamp.
You could also do a few other things with this. You could have the whole image colored and then cut out a non colored piece instead or you could also use the image with the hole you punched out and lay it over another copy so basically the reverse.
Hope I was able to show someone out there a new technique they never tried, I really had fun playing around with this one.
Have a great weekend.
