Spotlight Technique

I feel a little bit of Christmas joy every other week when I get to make my ABC Christmas Challenge card. We are up to the letter H. H is for Hotspot or spotlight technique. I decided to have 2 spotlights in my image, one for each of the two animals! BTW, the image I used is a Penny Black from a set I purchased with a Simon Say Stamp Gift Certificate gift certificate I won in a previous ABC Christmas Challenge. I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 97 which is being hosted by my Kiwi friend Kathie!


Supplies used:
Stamps: Penny Black Holly Jolly Hedgy Christmas Critters Snowy Mouse Cat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, PTI Vintage Touch Ink
Cardstock: SU Rich Razzleberry, Summer Sun 
Paper: Crate Paper
Accessories: SU Rich Razzleberry Ribbon, Star Charm from Michaels, PTI Star Die.

Thanks for visiting!
Heidi

Hi Heidi, I just love your card, this is a great technique which I've never used but must have a go. I adore your card looks awesome. You've given me food for thought!!! Great job.
It's rained all day today and my son got soaked playing Soccer this morning I had a rain coat on and an umbrella and still got wet. Large after shock in Christchurch tonight 6pm 5.4 gave them all a bit of a fright. Have a great weekend. Thanks so mush for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
