Going Grey with Scrap-Creations: Favorite Technique


Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations we are challenged to use our favorite technique.  This week we are sponsored by Through the Craftroom Door Magazine.  Suzanne & Marti have put together a great craft magazine for all crafters, not just stampers.  They are graciously giving one of our participants a one year subscription to the magazine.

I chose to use an older technique, the spotlighting technique. Instead of using an image with some open area, I chose to use a new set I received a few weeks ago from I heart Papers called Very Square from Mint Motif.  I am enjoying this new set and this card, was fun to make.  The squares were very easy to cute and I finished off the card with some black spots.  I finished off the inside with a simple sentiment & need to get my card mailed off.

Hope you will join us over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations with your favorite technique and make sure to check out our design team members and their favorite techniques:

Card details:
Stamps: Very Square from Mint Motif

Kim - thanks for sharing! Funny how an "old" technique can catch an eye... I wouldn't have thought of spotlighting like you did it. Awesome
