Inkspirational Challenges - Spotlight Technique


Our new challenge at Inkspirational is:

For my DT card I made a birthday card for my football-mad nephew. First I printed the image - a digi from Lily of The Valley - onto craft card. Then I printed it again twice - once on plain white and then on spotty paper. I die cut a circle out of the white card,coloured the image in and pieced it onto the original image. Then I paper pieced the spotty paper on the gloves, Finally, I stamped a sentiment. Is this too much info????

I hope you'll pop over to Inskpirational and see what the rest of the team have made, and join in. 

I'd like to enter:

what a great card and image for your football (soccer to me!) loving nephew - your spotlight is so colorful against the kraft. At first I thought it was a basketball but then realized the net was upside down if it was...! Julia xx

I love your version of the spotlight technique because it shows you can also use this for a quick and easy masculine design. That little pop of colour and pattern is all the card needs.
