The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is to use the spotlight technique. This is simply where you pick a portion on the image you want to draw attention to in some way. We are sponsored by Lemon Shortbread, and I used this cute Halloween Girl and chose to spotlight the Halloween elements in the image. I first die cut that portion out, then colored it and put it back in it's place with a slight dimension.
I missed posting about the challenge last week because I was at my daughters awaiting the birth of my 2nd grandson Zack. He was born Monday morning and weighed in at 8.5 pounds! I am happy to report that both he and mom are doing great. It was such fun being there.
Anyway, last week's challenge was to make a masculine card. We were sponsored by Beccy's Place and Dr Digi's House Of Stamps. I chose a silhouette image from the Splish Splash set at Beccy's Place.
My first card I printed the image and then cut it out with my Scan n Cut. I water colored the background with color burst paints. Once everything was dry I glued the image to the card and added some rain drops with some crystal lacquer.
When I saw the negative space left where the image was cut out, I wanted to use it too and I love how it turned out.
