Spotlighting...

Tonight I decided to try my hand at the spotlight technique. Picking of course my new set from the holiday min from Stampin Up Holy Triptych.
Supplies for this card can be found here.

I wanted to spotlight baby Jesus in this card. So I stamped the image twice and colored one with my watercolor crayons and my aquapainter. Then I took my 1.25 circle punch and punched out the baby Jesus out then took my 1 3/8 circle punch to punch out a circle from a piece of scrap brushed silver cardstock. Then I lined the circles up to the uncolored image.



I am happy with it but it was hard to find the perfect sentiment to fit the card. I took the sentiment from a retired stamp set called Peace Be unto You. I am still not quite happy but i know I will find the perfect sentiment for this here soon. I think this would make a perfect Christmas card for someone this year. Well off to bed I go so I can get the kids off to school in the morning have a great night.
