Reverse Spotlighting

Did y'all see the new technique that Beate posted today on SCS? Reverse Spotlighting! You have to try it out! The final card looks a lot harder than it actually is. Love it!!!! I immediately knew that I wanted to use snowflakes. Mostly because I HAVE to finish up my Christmas cards! The swirls and polka dots are from a TAC set called Paisley Rockz and the snowflakes are from a TAC set called Winter Flakes. I kid you not, I'm so excited about this technique. It's super easy and I'm looking at all of my 2-step sets now with new ideas. Thanks for teaching me Beate :)

Stamps: Winter Flakes (TAC), Paisley Rockz (TAC), So Many Sayings
Paper: Always Artichoke, white, Bashful Blue, Ruby Red
Ink: Bashful Blue, Noir (Palette, TAC), Always Artichoke, Ruby Red
Other: ribbon from Jo-Ann, Hero Arts gemstones, word window punch, 1 1/4" circle punch
Technique: Reverse Spotlighting

Very nice. Not sure I'm going to try this right now but it does look fun.
I love how you combine non-winter sets with winter cards. You are very clever!
