Shine On!

This is the first picture taken with my new camera, what do you think? Looking at the card in front of me the colours aren't right on my screen, it's too bright and washed out - the bunny is more honey coloured and the shadows aren't showing up, On the eggs I've used the E41, 42 & 43 Copics along with the B00, B02 & B05 blues and blue-greens BG11, 32 & 34 that aren't showing up either. Bunny is coloured with E50 to E55 range and the grass is YG91, 93 & 95. Oh well, more practice and fiddling about with the camera settings is needed!

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are looking for something shiny on your creation, mine is those shiny little flowers with the shiny gem centres and the 3 little gem accents in the top corner. My Spring bunny stamp is from Lili of the Valley, coloured with Copics of course, then cut out with a slim oval Nestie that I then left in place to act as a guide when pricking around the edge. I've also pricked the edges of the papers by Designer Digitals to look like stitching so I can enter the Top Tip Tuesday challenge for stitching, which thankfully doesn't have to be real! The Lollipop Crafts challenge is to colour with your favourite medium - easy peasy - it has to be Copics! And Stampavie and More are looking for monochrome creations this week - perfect for my cool blues then! For embellishments I've added spotty blue ribbon, little gems to the centres of the sparkly flowers and in the top corner, punched a strip of MS lace, diecut poinsettia leaves from white card then inked the edges with soft blue chalk ink, and also diecut the fronds - both Marianne dies. The little circular text is a naughty sneaky peak of a new set of stamped sentiments that Kim will be launching at Cuddly Buddly early next month.

Our Sponsor for this challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is Tiddly inks and some of the DT have made beautiful cards with the digi images Christy kindly sent us, unfortunately I couldn't manage to print mine off.

  6. It's always hard with new equipment -so take it gently. Love those flowers & the spotty ribbon ties in beautifully with the spots on the eggs. Makes me feel more like Easter might not be so far away seeing this.
    We're tackling the new photo editing programme shortly - already downloaded to my MAC - a trip to Cardiff to find that out - but we did get me a new hard drive so all my photos are now safely backed up.
