Spotlight on Stampin' Saturday

An easy way to tackle those detailed stamps is to color only part of the image. This technique is called spotlighting.  Stamp your image.  Decide which part of your image you want to spotlight by coloring it.  You can do it on the first stamped image as Penny did.  Or you can stamp the image a second time on another piece of paper; punch out the portion that you want to spotlight; color it; then place it on top of the first uncolored image. That is what Alex did.
Here's one by Penny using the Mr. Stalone stamp:
 
This is what Alex created with the Koi Pond Mermaid:
 

So grab one of those great detailed stamps in the QKD store and try this technique. You can do it!
In the meantime, hope you have time to stamp a lot!.  Helene aka 2amscrapper at  LOTSA SCRAP
