Spotlighting Pine Cones


I used the traditional Spotlighting technique to create this Christmas card.  I used Technique Junkie stamp Pinecones - http://techniquejunkies.com/pinecones/ and TJ Merry Christmas .  - http://techniquejunkies.com/merry-christmas-2/.

I stamped the whole panel in a light tan/brown color.  Then I colored the area I wanted to "spotlight" with markers.  After stamping the image I punched out the pine cones and punched the dark brown circle.  I added a piece of designer paper left over from another card and placed it so it would be behind the "Spotlight" of pine cones.  Merry Christmas was stamped and heat embossed so it would stand out and not be absorbed into the design behind it.  I tied a "fork bow" using my Bow It All and adhered it to the left of the focal image.   It was all layered on dark brown card stock. 

Have a great day, and get inky!
