I will start by giving you a quick run down on what the Spotlight Technique is for those that have never heard of it before.  Well, it is a quick and easy technique where you cut or punch out a portion of the stamped image.  You then highlight the punched or cut out portion only by adding some colour, leaving the rest of the stamped image plain.
Spotlight Technique by Patrice
I started by stamping the bird using different colour browns on the front portion of the card.  I then stamped another bird on scrap paper but this time in colour, punched out the head of the bird using the 1″ circle punch, then popped it up on a dimensional.

To give the card a little more life I coloured a strip of the Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper using daubers and the same colour inks that I used on the head of the bird and then adhered to the card base.
