This week our challenge at Heart 2 Heart was "In the Spotlight" and as always you can interpret that however you want; that is what I truly love about the H2H challenges, you can go in what ever direction you want with the theme! So for the spotlight, it could be the spotlight technique (which I tried for the first time), or putting something or someone in the spotlight on your card, layout or project.
The card I made is super simple as I am part of a swap and one of the cards I need for the swap is a note card, just a plain, no sentiment note card and I thought this would be a cute idea to use for that type of a card.
I used the CTMH stamp called Card Word Puzzle (my go to for anything like this, I LVOE IT!) and I coloured in the flowers with Gypsy, Goldrush, and Cotton candy. I was hoping to use some of the Sarita paper pack (hence the colours I chose) but the papers just did not work with the spotlight and flowers I chose (in my opinion) so I just went with Gypsy card stock. I still feel it needs something and on the fence about adding some bling to it but decided to sleep it on and see how I feel in the morning (or a few weeks knowing me…lol)
This is not a new technique by any stretch but it was the first time I had tried it. I love the affect it gives and will be playing with it again I am sure.
