Christmas Stamping all Year Long-Spotlight Technique and OCL Blog Candy Winner

I am the hostess for the CSAYL Blog this week! The technique-Spotlighting! This is a very easy, but effective technique. Basically all you do is stamp an image in one colour. Then you will stamp the image again, punching or cutting out the part of the image that you would like to see spotlighted, colouring that piece and mounting it over the main image. Easy Peasy!

Head on over to the CSAYL blog too see all the great creations!

Stamp is from The Stamp Barn in Ottawa Ontario. Funny I should use this image. I'm off to see AC DC in Ottawa today!!! Very excited and lots to do before I leave, so I better run!

But not before I announce the winner of my OCL Blog Candy. The winner is jaymack, who said I love Candy Corn and Halloween! Congratulations. Please email me with your address and I'll pass it onto the OCL team, who will mail you out your prize

Happy Stamping!
