Spotlight Technique ?

Hi Everyone a card with a, new for me, technique I tried, 
but not like you clever people, but in PS. 
with a pattern by Marisa Lerin at Pixelscrapper
The sentiment is a free download from Desert Diva
I selected a circle shape and made a mask of the shape then painted inside the circle. 
I printed it out on cross hatched paper, making it an interesting texture effect.
I 3D'd the sentiment and added little squares 
which are off cuts from a die I used ages ago.
I suppose by my digital try at this effect, I am daring to be different.

I really didn't couldn't see the point of scrapbook pages 
UNTIL I made a couple of digital pages,
 now I am seeing photos for what they can be, and I'm loving it.
Here is a scrap page I did with photos of my recent camera walk.
Template is by Jilbert Beginnings 
The papers, flowers and berries elements are Dawn by Design.


  1. A fabulous card Faith, a great technique and I love the textured look.

  2. Oooo, Faith, I adore your spotlight technique! Beautifully done. Great photos of the berries, too. :-D

  3. Love the crosshatch paper - really gives an interesting texture to the card. Great job on the spotlighting and that sentiment is perfect for the card design.

  4. What a lovely layout Faith and a great way to showcase your photos xx

  9. Love the card and the scrapbook page is really pretty. I'm with you Faith in that I couldn't see the point of scrapbooking but just recently I am starting to record our trips etc. and I am also doing a baby book for my niece who is expecting in November.

  10. I love your card and the spotlight technique. Those blackberries look good and would look even better in a yummy blackberry cobbler. Ummmmmmm.
