My new Stamp Barn rubber
Hello - I am so excited this morning because I like how my card photo turned out - I have been very frustrated with my compact digital camera so far - my recent images on this blog have been disappointing to me. I have two cameras - a small digital one (the one I have been using) and a Canon Rebel. We have had the Rebel for a number of years and I did get pretty good at taking photos with it but unfortunately I put it away a long time ago and allowed it to collect dust - I purchased a new compact camera which I thought would be easier and handier but I never learned how to use it properly. Yesterday I pulled out my Canon Rebel and cleaned off the dust and brought out my manuals. I used it for this card and I was surprised at how much better the picture came out. I have now been inspired to take some time to read my manuals and get some better shots hopefully. Any how onto my card - it is from the Stamp Barn - I have a few stamps from this company and I like them - especially this sweet girl. I wanted to make her soft and I thought pink was a good place to start - I did some paper piecing on her (her apron, hair ribbon and basket) and the rest is colored in with copics (didn't keep out the colors this time - sorry) and used my fine black pen to add some doodling around the edges as well as some Tim Holtz distress ink. I added some buttons, turquoise pearls, a SU sentiment stamp and my nesties to finish off the card. Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my blog - this really is a work in progress for me and I am enjoying this so much.
