Are you familiar with the Spotlighting Technique? There are several different paths you can take to do the spotlighting. But one way is to stamp a larger image, stamp part of it again on a piece of white cardstock, color this smaller piece, mat it in a narrow mat, then apply it over the same portion of the original inked image. Got that?? 

When the girls came to my Stamp-In Workshop this past Monday, one of their creations was a spotlighting card. I will share that card, complete with tutorial, in my next blog post.

Anyway, Stella, my precious 9-year-old granddaughter, came for a brief visit with her mom, dad and dog, Chloe. I showed her the four cards that would be made at the workshop two days hence, and she liked the spotlighting one, so we decided to collaborate on one for her to take home.

And here is the result:

Using the cute stamp set, From the Herd, Stella did all the stamping and the coloring of the spotlighted piece using Stampin' Write Markers. She also chose the color scheme and the portion of the image that would be spotlighted. My part in this collaboration was cutting and gluing. 

 I love how she colored her spotlighted portion. We decided to add googly eyes to the pig's face.
