Because I totally stink at the Spotlighting technique, I thought I'd try that first. This is what happened:
I'm pretty sure you're supposed to use something floral, but I'm ornery and contrary, so I chose a Paper Smooches set that I almost never use, and ... I used it. I stamped the mushroom row in black, and added the clouds with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. I stamped the mushroom again on a remnant of white, and added the bird, then cut them out with a circle die. I also cut a slightly larger circle from a remnant of black patterned paper that was lying next to my paper trimmer.
I colored the bird with bright colors (he's the spotlight, after all), added a strip of washi tape to ground the 'shrooms, added a sentiment, and some obligatory birds in the sky.
Then I made a second card, this time with spectacles:
All I knew when I started this card was I wanted to use the big glasses and that sentiment. Then I spied the spectacle-themed papers in my MME Flair 6x6 pad, and the play began. I fussed with bits of remnants until I decided the black stripes made an awesome contrast to the background.
The glasses were originally green, but when I tried to "fix" one of the corners, I drew all over the green paper, so I had to cut another one, and I was out of green. Sigh.
Here is what I was trying to "fix":

I hope you'll play along and make a spectacle of yourself over at SOS this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
