I’m not really too sure how I feel about this card. part of me loves it, but part of me just wants to add more colors!! The challenge over at MarkerPop is to color an image monochromatic. I used my favorite Wryn image. I just had to color the heart pink though! I stamped the little hearts on the black panel then embossed them. The hearts and the sentiment are from MFT.
It’s been a great weekend. Went for a 28 mile bike ride with my hubby this morning. The weather was just gorgeous! We were in the mid 70′s today. It’s back to work tomorrow for me. Hope everyone has a great week!
It’s been a lazy weekend for me, and I’ve really enjoyed it. The past few months have been so hectic and busy that a slow weekend at home was just what I needed. Yesterday I ran a few errands and did a little laundry with hubby then relaxed all evening. Today I went for a 4 mile run, then soaked in the tub, then spent the afternoon watching HGTV and playing in my craft room. I’m sure I could’ve gotten a lot done around the house, but, hey – it’ll all be there next weekend waiting for me.
I created this for the Featured Stamper challenge over at SCS today. I used the sketch, but changed the colors and image. I used another digi of Wryn from Tiddly Inks. The sentiment is from Sweet-n-Sassy.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Back to work tomorrow – Blah! I’d rather stay home and craft!!
I have had my eye on this sweet image from Tiddly Inks for a very long time. I finally caved today and purchased a few of the digi’s of Wryn. Isn’t she adorable?!? The sketch is the Deconstructing Jen sketch #83. Jen’s having a DT Call, and I thought I’d give it a shot. I love her sketches!!
Edited to Add (ETA): I decided to try out my new speedlite flash that I got from Santa this year to see if I could improve on my photos a bit. Still not where I’d like them to be, but hey, I’m learning. :) This next photo was taken with the flash, in automatic mode. The photo above was taken without a flash (with my daylight lamp shining on the card) in manual mode. I think I prefer the speedlite photo better, but I do like that without the flash you really see the sparkle of the stickles. I guess I need to read the manual and learn to use the new flash in manual and see if I can capture the sparkle.
The other difference is that in the first photo I used two sheets of white card stock (below and behind the card). In the next photo I just set the card on a cream colored table. The black behind is actually the granite of my fireplace. I think I like how the black background makes the photo pop more.
Which photo do you prefer??? Please leave a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear your feedback.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
