Thanks to a link from Kristina, I found THE BEST card photo tips I've seen to date. Check out the posts here and here on sideoats + scribbles! And the best part (aside from the fact that it WORKS) is that it is so easy! I used the instructions from that second link to get these before and after photos of the card I made today. Check it out:
The first photo is done using a photo light tent and the indoor/no flash setting on my little hand held Canon PowerShot SD750. Next you see the same photo using the white balance instructions from Lisa that took all of 30 seconds in Photoshop Elements 5.0. I am seriously excited about this.
I went through a few old card photos that were still stored on my computer. These were photos that I had already edited using the "auto quick fix". It even made those so much better. And it worked every single time. Too cool, I say! Here are a couple of those. They were both taken outside with natural daylight.
So anyway, here are the details for today's pink flower card (the first one) using this week's Splitcoast sketch challenge. I colored directly on the rubber stamp (Silhouette Blooms I from Cornish Heritage Farms) with celery, olive, regal rose, rose red, and so saffron markers, spritzed with a light mist of water, and stamped on SU! whisper white.
Stamps- Silhouette Blooms I (CHF)
Paper- pretty in pink, white, choc chip, rose red, Bali Breeze (SU!)
Ink- celery, olive, regal rose, rose red, so saffron (SU!), vintage photo distress ink (Ranger)
Accessories- scallop punch (Martha Stewart), Dashes Dots & Checks ribbon
So, now can anybody tell me why there are no spaces in this post? Because there are as I'm typing in Blogger. Drives me crazy that it does that sometimes.
