I love trying new techniques, it what the challenges are all about afterall....learning and stretching ourselves. I've learnt so much in my few short months in blogland. I've wanted to give this Spotlighting Technique a try for a while so with our new challenge over at Amber's Crafts and Stuff being to Try A New Technique...I couldn't hold back any longer could I. I really love the look it gives to a card.
It was my very first time using a crop-e-dile too, which is why you see the little ribbon embellishment next to my eyelet....it's to disguise the hole I cut in wrong place : D!!!
As you can see I've used another of my crochet roses, and gave it some crocheted leaves and a couple of tendrils too.
Below is the sketch I used. I've got this labeled as Lynns Sketch, it's by Quirky Crafts Challenge, and ran a few weeks ago.
Now I'm sure you all have a technique or two you've been itching to have a go at.....so go ahead and join us in the challenge here
