I have decided from now on I'm going to leave the photography to my husband! lol :)
I struggle sometimes to take a good picture, and blame it on the fact that I only have a wee digi camera, and my OH has big digital SLR's and really fancy lenses....... However, this was taken with my little digital camera and was edited by my husband on his pc using 'Lightroom' software. What a difference! I am going to have to play around with that and learn for myself. ;)
Anyway, I made this card today for the Lili of the Valley challenge using Dawny's sketch which was brilliant! I am a good day early with this (which is unusual for me) but I couldnt wait to use this new image.
I used HOTP papers, and distressed and hand stitched the back panel. I used green brads in the corner, and layered pink die cut nesties and the fleur-de-lys die. I stamped extra wings using a pink Brilliance ink pad on Vellum and then threaded and stitched the beaded trim along the bottom. The leaves I have had in my stash for yonks, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Oh, and what doesnt show up at all on the picture is the Sakura glisten pen I used to give highlights and faerie sparkle on the dress and in her hair.
