Spotlight Technique @ MAWTT

Mornings all! 
It is Thursday and that means ... 
A new challenge at

Sue is in the Hot Seat this week and the challenge is ... 
Spotlight Technique!

Something a little different!  
And not something I have ever played with before - could be interesting! lol
So here we go! 

I am not sure on the 'offical' rules for this technique.  My understanding of it is to make part(s) of the image standout.  I tried with only 1 spotlight but it was lacking color to me :( so I added another lol (because I can!)  I have also taken my 'spotlights' and given them a dose of Tim Holtzs clear rock candy.  I brought this back in July and still have not played with it so it was about time it saw the light of day and some experimenting was done! 

The image has been colored with Spectrum Noirs and is the gorgeous Flowers and watering can (I have edited out the watering can) from the ever fabulous The Crafty Pad Designs.  I do love this image!  It is a great purchase as you can have 3 in 1 images - the image as it is, the flower pot or the watering can!  Love value for money! 

Anyways, The Crafty Pad is also sponsoring the challenge this week!
