Clean card - Spotlight

Hi again
This is post number 2 for today to link with the tag and again to fit in with the Treehouse Challenge to use the spotlight technique.
Having made a distressed tag first of all, I then wanted to make a clean card to see the differences in the way it looks.
I used a Personal Impressioms stamp and used the Nestabilities small and large labels to cut out the spotlight piece and the mount. I painted the section using DIs and added some extra shine by using the sakura glitter pens. I mounted it on some course netting material from my fabric box and added a ribbon and some buttons.

Of course it has created something completely different and much fresher looking with NO distressing to be seen!!!
Enjoy. LOL Bxx
