My friend is a secretary but in her personal time she teaches ballet, hence the choice of image! I used the Claudia & Company monthly challenge to try the spotlight technique where you spotlight a portion of the card. I'm not sure if I interpreted this right! I basically coloured in the background figures in very pale colours with my Copics to give them a washed out look and then used the darker shades for the main image to "spotlight" her. Here's a close up so you can see what I mean...
Right, off to bed so I can get up early and sneak in some more crafting before Steve gets up!
