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!
