Claudia & Co. .....December "Spotlighting" Challenge







Hello and Happy Friday!


This month's Claudia & Company's challenge theme is "Spotlighting"! We want you to spotlight a particular area of your card and you can apply this technique in various ways. You can either color in your image and spotlight a particular area of your image by omitting color in that area or you can stamp your image and only color in a particular area of interest. The choice is yours to make and we would love to see your take on our spotlighting challenge.



I'm not 100% pleased with the results of my spotlighting but after viewing the Claudia & Co. DT cards, I have an idea for future cards using this technique. Winter Hannah's colors are almost monochrome and I simply spotlighted an area of Winter Hannah's skirt and jacket. Other features are the embossed snowflake background,tiny snowflakes and ribbon.

Be sure to stop by and check out the Claudia & Company Blog and check out the DT cards. I love each DT members take on the challenge and I hope that you are inspired as well. You have a month to complete your card and all cards are to be uploaded to the Claudia & Company Blog. The only rule....you are required to use Claudia & Company Stamps. Have a great weekend and have fun with the challenge!
