Spotlighting the Spotlight

Its our birthday over at Crafty Cardmakers so we have a birthday challenge still running if you want to play and this week is the turn of our spotlight challenges and we're doing the Spotlight technique! Its a lovely technique that you can really play around with and looks stunning. I chose to do a reverse spotlight where I coloured the whole image and used black and white spotlights.

I used stampscapes palms with huts (large) and watercoloured one with starburst stains in winter jasmine gold, peony scarlet red, red hot poker orange, hydrangea blue and moonshadow ink tawny turquoise on the huts. I cut out 2 circles from the black and white version, added 3d gloss then placed over coloured image, matted and layered, simples!
