CCEE Monday-Spotlighting

Hello everyone! It is Monday and time for another CCEE Challenge. This week is our CNFS challenge (Catchy Name Featured Stamper) ... we pick someone who has a catchy user name over on SCS and then we create our card around that stamper's name and send off our cards to them.This week it was Tosh's turn to select the person whose name we were going to use and she selected Michelle aka JustPaintingAround. Tosh told us that Michelle has a spotlighting style that she loved, so for our card we had to use the spotlighting technique.

Of course I was a doorbell about this challenge and couldn't figure out the spotlighting style they were referring to (I have now learned that it is Michelle's way of framing certain parts of an image!) It is awesome.

So, I created a simplistic card spotlighting the bird. All stamps are from Gina K Designs. The trees and sentiment are from Tree Silhouettes and the bird is from Home Tweet Home (illustrated by Rupa Shevde). The shimmery cardstock (Poison Ivory Curious Iridescent) is from CutCardstock.com. (Did you notice the shimmer that comes through the ink on the trees?--lovely!)

You can check out all the other amazing cards by the CCEE team HERE. Hope you will play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
