Before we get started.. I have to share a definition that My hubby came up with for me.  I thought I should share it with you cause it’s very possible that my blog reflects these same attributes that my speaking does.. anyway here it is for a heads up and perhaps a chuckle..

In literary criticism, stream of consciousness isnarrative mode that seeks to portray an individual’s point of view by giving the written equivalent of the character’s thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue  or in connection to his or her actions. Stream-of-consciousness writing is usually regarded as a special form of interior monologue and is characterized by associative leaps in thought and lack of punctuation. (See Kath Harney)

Ok on to the card technique

THIS IS SO CLEVER!!!DAWN’S SPOTLIGHTING technique… First be sure you watch the complete video cause she adds a third idea for using this technique that is very clever also. I just love this girl.

Two ways to spotlight by Dawn

These are two of mine and I like the tulip one the best …at time of this writing I didn’t have a butterfly but I am getting one… as you can see I took the lazy way and punched out the colors after stamping on the colored card stock… but the smaller image doesn’t work as well as the tulips ( which I think are Hero arts)  In any case, I do like this technique and hope that you will too and do try some with stamps you already have…but think of your larger ones rather than the smaller ones… I also tried this with just large word stamps (below).. and made balloons out of the circles on the words RAH RAH RAH… inside I wrote hurray its your birthday not mine… but you could just write hurray its your day… Happy Birthday..oh yeah I also slipped in an oval for an oval balloon… I tried it on white paper and it didn’t work as well so I switched to black and liked it much better as the punch outs really seemed to pop.

Well I hope you’ll dig thru your stamps and come up with one or two that will work with this technique .
