A Card for LOV Challenge - Seasons

Good Morning Ladies I carnt tell you how many times I tried to photo this card it was many and this is the best of the bunch, because I used glitter on the image and silver mirri board it was glaring with the flash, and fuzzying up without, so please forgive the bad photo.
Anyway todays card has been made for the Seasons Challenge from Lili of the Valley, and Ive used this cute little fairy carrying a present for someone, Ive coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with a star nestabilitie die, then used the same shape for the mount from mirri board, the sentiment has been done in the same way, then stuck together offset.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one of three papers from the new Dovecrafts Jolly Happy Christmas set, a pretty all over pattern of santas and bears etc, the second paper is a sentiment one and the third a start one, across this one Ive stuck a ribbon with holly on and attached it to the back.
I then positioned my sentiment at the bottom on the right and the image at the top towards the left hand side, to finish of Ive stuck two sets of two poinsettas on some silicone glue with some punched out leaves underneath.
This card is to be entered into the following challenge:-

Lovely festive card Shirley. I think photographing cards well is really hard and everyone seems to make it look so easy. I think I need to get my camera manual out yet again!Cheers Claire x

Hi Shirley, Such lovely rich colours on this card. Photographing cards can be such a nightmare sometimes! The mirri either glares too much or just looks black! The glitter shows too much or not at all! For me it was either dark skies making my photos too dark or such bright sun it washed out the shot today!

Jules said...

Hi Shirley

Super sparkle and glitter .. .. just perfect for Christmas .. .. but unfortunately not perfect for photographing.

I always struggle if I have used too much metal !!! LOL!!!

Hope all is well with you Shirley and that you now have your computer all set up as you want it.

Love Jules xx
