my first try at spotlight colouring

Not had much time to craft of late but so wanted to do some colouring so thought I'd have a go at spotlight colouring. I happened to have a scrap of card with some circle dies holes cut in it so just used one of these as my spotlight area.

I used a white base card and added a piece of paper I had in my scrap file that i had previously played on with mica pigment inks and some rock salt.






 I added a piece of hessian ribbony stuff not sure what to call it really.I pulled a thread from it and used this to tie 2 lily of the valley tags to it.

Card done.
