I have a variation of a favorite card to share today. I liked the older one for a couple of reasons and decided to make another with a few differences. I love this vintage Tilda stamp. It is perfect for dressing up! LOL I had leftover papers and ribbon, so why not? I'm really trying to get the lighting right when taking my shots. I think I'm getting worse. I just can't seem to get it right. The card below looks all washed out and that isn't even using a flash! Ugh! Back to the card - I colored this card with distress inks, made her dress from matching paper, used pink photo corners as well as die cuts and Stickles. The inside features a sentiment area made from my Nesties, charms (that's a dragonfly in the sentiment area), pretty ribbons, and additional die cuts and flower. The dragonfly paper has a glossy surface which enhances the look a bit.
Here it is:
See what I mean about the lighting? The pink on the bottom card is pretty accurate while the top looks red. When there was less contrast, the yellow looked all washed out. Now, you can see the yellow, but the pink is so ugly. I just give up with the photo lighting for a while! Today was frustrating. Even DH tried to help get the lighting right. Nothing seemed to work.
I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges. Hopefully those sponsoring the challenge will look past the crummy, inconsistent colors, and see the elements.
