Anything Goes Bellaholics Challenge

Well another Christmas is over, I hope all of you enjoyed the holiday! I was spoiled with lots of fun stuff from a bundle of Copics in my stocking, a great new chair for my craft room, goodies galore and a box of Prima flowers, gems, brads and a cute T-shirt from my daughter. Santa brought our family Wii Fit so that we could all have fun and exercise and after all the food and goodies we all ate over the last two days were really going to need it, I'm still stuffed from dinner last night, ugh!

On to the post, it's the fourth Friday of the month which means it's time for another Bellaholics Anything Goes Challenge! As the Anything Goes Challenge Queen for the Bellaholics Anonymous Yahoo group I thought it would be fun if we could create a Stamping Bella card or project and use the Spotlighting technique. I've seen this technique done several different ways, one way is to not add any color to your image other than the spotlighted area, another is to color the whole image as you normally would and add a spotlighted focal point on something in the image (ex: cupcake, beverage, flower) and the other as I've done is to use muted colors to color your image and add a pop of bright color to the spotlighted area. I think all of these different ways of using this technique look good and would love to see what you can create using the technique of spotlighting! This challenge is not just for Bellaholics Yahoo group members so please feel free to jump in and give it a try! If you create a card/project for my challenge please leave me a link to your project on this post.

Thanks
