September Theme Challenge - Spotlight It!

Welcome to our new challenge for September - we're on a theme this month and our theme is to spotlight it.  The spotlight technique is an oldie but we think it's still a goodie and there are plenty of ways to interpret it.  Basically you just need to "highlight" one area of your card either through the use of colour whilst the rest is black and white, by using a frame to pick out an area, mats and layers over stamping, or even by creative use of die cuts!  We'd love to see your take on the spotlight technique whether traditional or your modern twist.

If you're still a little confused then hopefully the first examples we've brought you as a DT will give you a few ideas of how to take it.

I have used colour to spotlight one of the cows in the herd and popped it up on foam dimensionals.
I have used MFT's The Whole Herd

Taheerah went for highlighting stamped, die-cut letters as a part of her design. She used the Arabesque Medallion stamp set and Bold Alphabet dies from Altenew for this stylish card - with some Nuvo Crystal Drops thrown in for accents!

Using Newton's Nook Cultivated Cacti I went for a stamped shelf full of grey-toned cacti with one in glorious colour stamped and cut and layered on top.

You've got until 10pm on Sunday 24th September to get your spotlights shining for a chance to win £20 to spend in store.  As always you MUST use at least ONE product from the choice of 8000+ products we have in store.  You can combine with other challenges but we must see that you used our challenge as inspiration to play.
