New Stamps and a New Spotlight Technique

I love spotlighting and so when I saw a new spotlight technique in the lastest Technique Junkies newsletter, I just had to try it out. This one is called Pierced Spotlighting. I used a circle shape to highlight this image and, as I try not to do "the expected" too often, I chose to spotlight the book rather than the face in the central image. The remainder of the image was sponged with light apricot ink to give it a soft feel. These fantastic stamps are from Stubby Stampers.

A Friend is a Rare Book
girl reading and sentiment (Stubby Stampers)
Paper: Oh Baby from the Gracie line (BasicGrey)
Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie (Stampin Up)
Ink: Timber Brown (StazOn); Old Olive (Stampin Up)
Pencils: various watercolor pencils
Tools: circle punch (Creative Memories); paper piercer

Hope you get to spend a couple moments with a rare friend today!
