Jessica's Sixth Birthday

My photography lately is rubbish!!!!!!  I make a nice card, sit there and admire it for a while and QUICKLY take a photo before putting it into it's envelope never to be seen by my naked eye again and all I have for a memory is my badly taken photo.......well it's my own fault I suppose.

The image was stamped onto pearlised card, coloured in with pencils and then sponged with ranger inks spritzed with water.  The mirror card is a beautiful mauve/purple and matched the "amethyst" Versacolour ink pad beautifully.  Ah well, I will work harder on the photography next time.

It's really hard to take decent photos when the light's rubbish isn't it. We need some lovely sunshine again. Anyway, it looks great to me. I love the background. I was watching someone demoing stamping onto pearl card recently and it's something I really want to have a go at, the results look gorgeous.

I have done that so many times!!! Sometimes you realise when the envelope is still there but I can never quite bring myself to open up the envelope and re-take the photo!! Still it does look great. I have tried stamping on to pearl card a few times and was impressed with the effecct.

Hi Carol

My photos let me down as well. Onbe of my sons is a professional fashion photographer and every time I moan says "it's just perspective". I think it's a not more than than looking at what I ends up with most days.

It's a great card anyhow.
