Spotlight Challenge

Speedy the Cat has challenged us to highlight an animal image, so what could be better than a House Mouse scene. Here are the infamous mice "wrapping" swiss cheese squares for gifts...too cute!

For a little sparkle, I used a Sakura clear star pen over the purple ribbon. (Thank you Gina K. for recommending these pens--they're great!) The large circle was then attached with a SU dimensional, the smaller one with ds tape. (Click for a closer view.)

TIP: Highlighting is a great technique for those intricate detail stamps that otherwise would require a lot of coloring. Not only does it go faster, but it also emphasizes the central image beautifully. For more examples of this technique, visit Mark's Finest Papers HERE.
