Timeless Spotlight

It is time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge. The focus this week was on the spotlight technique. One of my favorite Flourishes stamps is Winter Bouquet, but it is a ton of coloring. I thought it was PERFECT for the spotlight technique. I got to use it and yet... didn't have to color the whole thing! So Quick - but still fun!

I stamped the image twice, and then cut it out with Nesties. Once I colored the inside portion, I mounted it on the dark green cardstock and cut out a slightly larger edge. As I was looking at it, I decided that the total image was a little to plain with just white, so I "reverse" spotlighted on the larger image and colored the light blue background, but not the image..... I don't know if that is a proper term, or me just making stuff up... but it is what I thought of. :-)
