Snowflake and Willow

Gosh it is so dark today isn't it. This was the best I could get with these cards and you can't see all the highlights in the hair, has anyone got any tips please on how to photograph in poor light?

This card is for 2 challenges, I have reused the fab sketch on WOJ to make a card for my sister whose first baby is due today! She doesn't know what she is having so I have used a yellow and green pallett and made it sparkly as she loves bling. I have added stickles to already glimmer misted roses for extra sparkle. The image I made to look like a cameo as our mother adored these to make the card extra special for her. I am just annoyed that the poor lighting cannot pick out my shading as I am so pleased with it.

challenges -
WOJ - sketch
Cute card Thursday - 1sts

eta - I can't even take another photo of it as my Dad took one look at it and has taken it home with him, right need to make George another one now!

Fantastic sketch on the sugar bowl this week, with the added theme of paper piercing, I must admit I have made a few cards like this as it is fab in different colour schemes. I coloured the flower with my copics as I didn't have the shade I wanted, think it looks ok.

challenge - sugar bowl.

Both of these cards are precious!! Love your colouring in the first one, would love to see it IRL, I know your struggles with bad lighting, lose so much detail that way. Your second card is very pretty, I love her outfit!!
