Spotlight Technique Inspired By Katie Skiff

My friend and teammate Katie Skiff just posted a video on the Spotlight technique that you can use on cards or even in scrapbooking.  CLICK HERE to watch her video on YouTube.  She shows a few different variations of this technique.  And below is a card I made using my own variation of that technique.  I love it!

I colored the flowers with Twinkling H2o watercolors, colored the butterflies with Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen, and the frame was cut using Sizzix square dies and my Cuttlebug.
