Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!




Screen Shot 2016-04-30 at 2.34.35 PMHello Friends,  I am hosting a fun Trend Challenge this week at Just Us Girls!  The trend we are doing is called the spotlighting technique!  If you have not heard of it, I have linked up ONE of the many ways this technique can be done HERE!  I had such a good time making this card, I am really starting to enjoy coloring as it is so very relaxing. I am also glad I finally decided to ink up this beautiful stamp that I have had for quite sometime, but had been sitting on the shelf intimidating me. LOL

This stamp is from Northwood Rubber Stamps and is very large. I picked it up at a Stamp Store in Lakeland. I used Prisma colored pencils as my medium of choice!  I didn’t put a sentiment on this card as of yet, as I wanted it to be available to me if I needed it for a special occasion! There is another shot of my card below, and I sure hope you won’t let this technique scare you away and you will join us at JUGS!  You have to at least come on by and see all the fabulous cards from the Designers and our guest Cornelia!

Make Your Mark badgeI am also linking this card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where their challenge is to make your mark.

Take care,  Nanc’

  16. I love everything about this, Nancy. The stamp is great and your coloring is fabulous.

  17. Well your coloring is simply perfect, and I love how you treated the technique. One’s first thought is always to do a circle – I think it’s because of the word “spotlight”. LOVE that you did a rectangle. Just a gorgeous, gorgeous card!!!
