Blessings! Bendiciones!
Today I participated in one challenge! Hope you enjoy the samples and go stamp! Cheer Up!
 Hoy participe en un reto! Espero poder inspirarle con estas tarjetitas y que vaya a estampar! Animese!
In my challenge I started with this card...which thou I liked it and it WAS inpired by it, it just didn't make the cut to upload to their site (I think). :/ It challenged me thou to keep trying so I made a second one...and that one I uploaded to HandStampedSentiments blog for their Sketch Challenge #154, HSSSC154
What do you think? Here is the sketch!
En el reto que participe comence haciendo la tarjeta de la mariposa pero ya luego como que no hiba con el gusto pero hice otra, ja! Que cree? La subi al blog de Handstampedsentiments para el sketch#154 HSSSC154

Colors/Colores: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Summer Starfruit,

I used the Spotlight technique on can see this technique here below.
En ambas tarjetas use la tecnica de destacar. La explico mas abajo. :)
Spotlighting/ Destacando
1) Stamp desired image on two pieces of card stock. Set one aside to serve as background for spotlighted image.
1) Estampe la imagen que deea en dos pedazos de cartulina. Ponga una a un lado para que sirva como el fondo.

2) On the other piece of card stock, color the area you wish to highlight.
2) En la otra cartulina coloree la arte que desea que sobresalga o se destaque.

3) Punch out the part of the image you wish to highlight.
3) Ponche a parte de la imagen que deea destacar.
4) Line up punched, colored piece with the separate stamped image and adhere.
4) Paree la parte coloreada con la imagen estampada en el fondo y pegue (yo use dimensionales).
5) Complete project.
5) Complete su proyecto.
  • Consider layering spotlighted piece over contrasting color of card stock cut slightly larger. This will help accentuate the spotlight.
  •      Considere usar un pedacito de cartulina de color que contraste un poco mas grande que la imagen que poncho. Como se ve en la foto. :)

    (such a blessings to have read this yesterday)

    Una palabrita para ti:
    "Ten la valentia de pasar por el dolor y lo duro para ser parte de una mejor historia. Una historia mayor. No te rindas!"
