Spotlight ...

I really enjoyed Judy's article in 'Craft Stamper' Mag on using character stamps in different ways. I loved the spotlight effect so have decided to give it a go. I've used my 'LOTV' stamp as a starting place. Go and check out Judy's blog it's a great place for inspiration.

I've carried on the circle idea with Sizzix texture plates - Circle Circus and Rings.

Papers are Rose Studio. I also embossed a D&D dragonfly and the sentiment is also round.

Ribbon and padded heart are from my stash.

May have to use this for some Christmas cards too I think.

Thank you Judy.
Lastly my spotlight is on summer fruits. I had a go at making Cherry Clafoutis for tea last night following 'Gordon's' receipe.

Very nice indeed if you like Cherries and Almonds.
What are you placing in the spotlight?


  1. This is a lovely way to create a different focal point. Really effective and executed.
