Just Us Girls # 347 - Trend Week

Dear Ones~
This week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls, and our host Nancy has chosen the Spotlighting Technique.
This technique is pretty much self explanatory. For more inspiration, visit our Just Us Girls Challenge Blog.

Here's my card:
For this spotlighting I cut a circle mask, and a mask for the image. After stamping the image with black ink, I masked the flowers and sponged the kraft ink inside the circle. Then I colored the image inside the circle with my Zigs. I did go outside the circle just a little with that leaf and the little berries. 
I just liked it better that way.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Kraft, Red Hot and White Card Stock
HOTP Botanical Blooms
HOTP Serendipity Flowers for Greeting
Zig Clean Color Markers
GKD Kraft Ink for Sponging
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful cards that our June Guest Designer Cornelia, and the rest of the team have made this week.  I hope to see you there.
And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our June challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of August!!  
Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Oh this is delightful! The spotlighting technique always makes your focal POP (of course!) I love how the leaves and berries continue outside of your circle, adds a bit more interest too! The coloring on those glorious flowers are perfect, they are outstanding! S very pretty!

  5. Kraft ink???? I did not know there was such a thing. Love how you masked the flowers to get the spotlight behind, and the flowers are colored beautifully. I own this stam and think it is beautiful,but I am never satisfied with my coloring. These just pop off the paper. Fabulous, my friend.
