Spot - Lighting

  


Today's challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps' Digi Makeover Challenge it to spot light a portion of your card.  I chose this image from the Guilty Pleasures - Food and Wine Set and my sentiment is from the Little Moments Sentiment Digi Set.


There are several different ways to spot light a portion of your card, but I decided to color in one area and color the rest of the image in sepia tones (I got the idea for sepia tones from Pat.  She did a fantastic job.)  Although this is my first try at it, I'm pretty pleased with the results.  Here are a few tutorials for those not familiar with this technique:

The background was created by embossing my paper with  Cheery Lynn Designs Lattice Circle Frame die.  It's designed as a die that you cut with, but I think it did a pretty good job of just embossing.  the border is the Sanibel border from Memory Box.  The label was created using the new Frames & Sprigs die cut/stamp combo from Sizzix/Hero Arts.  I cut the sentiment out using the smaller label die and adhered it to the larger stamped and die cut piece.

Be sure to check out all the other spotlighted creations that the rest of the design team has created for you.  You have one week to upload your project to the Digi Makeover Challenge.  The rules are posted on the blog, but are very simple.  I can't wait to see what you spotlight.
