Spotlight on a Snow Woman

 This week Gina K demonstrated the spotlighting technique on Stamp TV and her challenge was to make a card using this technique. Check out her video on STV.
I made this card with a snowman stamp that I bought at a garage sale --never had been used---and I've been itching to use it for a project.
I stamped it on a white CS and added some sky and clouds at the top and placed snow using stickles at the bottom and did some sponging too. I also stamped some snowflakes in the sky.  I stamped another copy of the stamp and colored in the snowman or "snow woman" that I wanted to spotlight with markers and pencils. I cut her out with a circle cutter and edged the circle with a blue inkpad. I then attached the circle directly over the other image. I placed this on a red mat stamped with a sentiment and put some hightlights on with stickles. This was attached to a green base card.
