H is for Hotspot

I've just about made it in time for the latest challenge on ABC Christmas Challenge which is 'H is for Hotspot' - colouring in a section of the main image and then mounting that section on to the whole image.  I couldn't get my circles the right size to get a separate black one to go underneath so I just outlined with a fine black liner instead.  Not quite so effective but I think it still works OK.  I decided to keep the base of the card very simple - it would be easy to draw attention away from the image and I wanted it to stand out.  My stamp is from Little Claire Designs - part of the 'All Set for Christmas' set from last Christmas and my background paper is from Craft Creations.

  6. Great job! love your card and yes the way you have done it works lovely too!
    If you want to try this technique another time I have a handy hint on my half way card that tells you how to get the black layer just a tad bigger than the white one, anyway thanks for playing along with us on the ABC Christmas challenge hope you come play again soon, Hugs Samantha :0)
