My camera is bug***d! so I've had to pop this card on the flat bed scanner in order to share it with you - looks like I may have to do this for the foreseeable future, until I can save up for a new camera or get mine fixed, but a new one might be cheaper! I had a little camera for Christmas but it's useless for taking close ups of the cards - I can get in really close for a macro image on the details, but just can't get a clear picture of all the card. I've wasted hours fiddling with different settings to no avail.
Back to today's creation then. I have a stack of cream cards that are just 120mm square so need smaller images for them, or I need to keep the image as the main focus of the design as I have here. The picture is washed out, the pinks are certainly brighter and as I've layered with 3d foam and stuck on the butterflies and flowers so the wings and petals can be raised up, the scanner has let in too much light and hasn't got things in focus. I've been trying my hand at the distressed/vintage style again and have inked all the edges with Walnut DI then added Stardust Stickles around the edges of the image, the text and the papers. The image came out last year and is called 'my little lamb' by Penny Johnson for Stampavie. I coloured with Copics, sorry no list today I put them away and forgot to make a note. The patterned papers are from Kim's yellow Cottage digi collection and I've matted with pink textured cardstock. I punched a lacy edge for the horizontal layer, but then covered it up with the circular sentiment! To embellish I've punched out little butterflies, leaves and hydrangea flowers, added tiny pearls and a piece of satin ribbon. I quite like how this one turned out, but just wish I had a better picture for you.
