Spotlight Coloring a Stamped Image

Spotlight coloring can be done in a variety of ways. As I show in my live video on my Live at 5! Let's Spotlight Color on June 3, 2019 Facebook live class. I do my best to do 2 live classes a week on Facebook. Tune in to interact in person.

Spotlight A: Color an image

Spotlight A: Cut out image

Spotlight A: Layer colored image on cardstock

Spotlight E: Use a frame

Spotlight F: Stamp image 2 times

Spotlight F: cut out one image

Spotlight F: Layer cut out image over solid cardstock 

Ways to Spotlight Color:
A. Stamp image once, cut out, color, layer on a solid color cardstock.
B. Use a mask to solidly color in an image. I used two colors and a sponge dauber.
C. Reverse Spotlight, Use a shape to lay over image and color around the image.
D. Mask to color in your image.
E. Use a frame, created using double layered dies, to highlight part of the stamp. I didn't color mine in.
F. Stamp image twice, color one image, cut out part of colored image, layer over solid cardstock on non-colored stamped image

Disclosure: I do not show finished projects, only how to do spotlight coloring, in this video.
