Spotlight card

Once again, Sarn has shown how to do a super technique - with details of how she did it, over here. This is my first attempt:
I used:

- cream 4.75" x 4.75" square card stock

- Penny Black 'Hello Sunshine' stamp and a VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia' ink pad - the image was stamped onto the card and then onto another piece of cream card to make the spotlight, which I coloured with Pro Markers

- Nestabilities die to cut out the circle from the partially coloured image and then stick on top of the image stamped onto the card itself

- sentiment is by SU, from the 'A Word for You' set, also stamped using VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia'

LOVE this idea - do hop over to Sarn's if you haven't already seen the lovely ideas she's come up with, clever girl!

I'm home as of this afternoon (Monday) and am absolutely shattered! Off to bed now and it's only just gone 9pm as I'm adding this to the scheduled post. Speaking of post - I came home to some wonderful post from Mary Mac and also from Sue for the Playground Toybox, as well as the news I'd won Caz's candy! Will catch up with you all ASAP and also do the draw for last week's Playground prizes - after a loooooong sleep ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
