Seven hills craft challenge

Over at the Seven hill Craft challenge they have asked for you to use the "spotlight " technique and to use only their products ..which is a huge list btw and the reason I know this?  its my go to shop for all those American brands that are hard to source over here, and can be found most mornings having my coffee and a wee browse of it at the same time lol.

But back to the challenge,
Never having used this technique before did a bit of research and it says to highlight through colour or layers part of your image.
So intrigued decide to give it a go!
Many moons later and tearing of hair :( this is what I came up with....

I'm not sure if it's right,but after I tried multiple images with one part highlighted but found I was never happy - they all looked wrong somehow !

Decided to stamp these Paper Smooches snowmen which I got ages ago and are now out of stock I see, used an oval die to cut out a section (didn't realise it was scalloped until i had cut it out ..but actually think it worked better.)
I then coloured in the cut out section before popping it back in the main panel .But thinking now that I should have maybe double layered it so it popped out more or left a bit more uncoloured then just the scarves??? 
But actually I quite like it, and the idea of a challenge is to challenge yourself is it not!

Thank you for taking the time to look


  1. You've come out the other end of this challenge a total winner, in my book, Jenni! These guys certainly do deserve the spotlight - they look as if they are inside a snow-globe! I see a winner, for sure! xx

  2. I LOVE you choice for this technique, Jenni! If you could only see how many times and how many different ways I have tried to execute this technique, you would laugh hysterically and feel better. Let's just say I did it the hard way more times than I should have before I realized I just needed to cut the spotlight part out and pop it up! Duh! I might have to CASE this one cuz I have these darling snowmen and I love how well they looked with just part of the scarves uncolored and how you did the sediment. Well done in the end with challenging yourself, my friend!! In other news, what's new??? Hugs, Darnell
