TT#12- Spotlighting

I love this technique of spotlighting, which is this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge, especially with the few Thomas Kinkade stamps I have. I used the Open Gate image for my card and colored it with Copics. I love the look of the spotlighted piece against the black and white. The sentiment is from a Our Daily Bread set and the label was cut using my Cricut and one of new Cricut lite carts, Lacy Labels. I found that lace with the seam binding ribbon at my Walmart too...you get 3 yards of it for under $2! It's not bulky, ties well and is cheap, yea! Some pearls and light distressing finished this off...hope you'll hop on over and play with us!
