This card was a fun one to do, even though the coloring took a little time. It's a variation on the Spotlight technique whereby the image is stamped twice. After coloring, one image is trimmed, and then layered over the other with pop dots . . .
Since this took a fair amount of time to color, I hated to waste the trimmed away portion of the image. I soon realized I'd done the right thing by doing such a careful trimming job as I was left with a cleanly cut piece I could turn into a frame . . .
I added another little banner at the bottom for my "With Love" & signature. I plan to use this idea with many other images for sure . . .
