Hey Friends!.... Happy Wednesday to you all! :)
Today i'm sharing a card that I made up for the new Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge.
For this card, I used the sunflower from the "You Are My Sunshine" stamp as the focal point. I colored it in with Copics, and then added a brown button with string to the center. I also stamped the "Flowering Vine" image in the background with Versamark. Overall, this card was super simple to make! I really hope you guys enjoy this card, and I urge you all to play along in the sketch challenge! All participants could have the opportunity to win a gift certificate for some free stamps So be sure to check out the Repeat Impressions Blog today for all of the info. and also to browse through more samples from the fabulous design team!
So, by the way.... did any of you notice anything different about my card photo today?... I actually used "natual light" this time. I almost always take my pictures during the night time, so therefore I'm always using a light tent. But since it was bright and sunny over the weekend, I figured i'd take advantage and try going outside for once.
What do you all think?... Do you prefer natural light over artificial lighting set-ups?.... Unfortunately, I work full time during the day and I usually stay late at work a lot. So I don't really have a choice when it comes to taking pictures of my cards. But it was nice to give this "outside setting" a try for once.
How do YOU take your photos of your cards?? I always think it's fun to learn what others are doing. So please share your techniques, if you have some time. :)
Ok, well.... I think I've rambled enough for today. LoL... Time to get my day started and hopefully be productive! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate you all SO much! ♥
