Butterfly Friends

OK, I got a new picture taking studio in a box thingy, that came with it's own portable lights, and while I love the set up, I am NOT liking the yellow-y lights! I just can't win with lighting! I don't know what to do now, I can't change the halogen bulbs! They don't have daylight halogens, or at least not that I can find. Oh the frustration! If anyone knows of a reasonably priced daylight lamp that is bright enough for indoor pictures, please let me know! So if my pictures have been looking a little 'off' lately, that is why, please excuse.
Anyway, here's another of the new Elisabeth Bell images from Sugar Nellie. I used it with the new Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday collection. So purrrdy, isn't it! Lots of scalloped layers on this one, reminds me of a little girls ruffled dress! Ruffles, ribbons, pearly buttons, what's not to love?!
I'm going to be busy working on new Magnolia DT projects this week, I received a large package of goodies yesterday! I'll have pictures of new Magnolia stamps soon!
Enjoy your Sunday!
Supplies: Sugar Nellie stamp, Palette Ink, Cosmo Cricket DP, Bazzil/Papertrey Ink cardstock, Papertrey Ink ribbon/button, Fiskars Apron lace punch, colored pencils, OMS, sewing machine, Stickles

  3. again a great card! those papers are yummy and you've coloured her soo nice! love the card! hugs, manuela

  4. What a great card. I love the colors.

    I read a tip with lighting for those box thingies (LOL). Put a square of pure white and black in the box with the card - so you actually take a photo of the card as well. The camera apparently will adjust the color and just crop that out of the photo. Hope that makes sense.

  5. You Might try playing around with the iso settings on your camera. You can get a color shift that can help or a lens filter if they still make such thing. Technique used to work with film, should work with digital.
    Other thing is to color correct in photoshop, the LE version won't break the bank. Tracey's comment is to automatically adjust white balance.

  6. Beautiful card, I love your layout and the colours you've used.

    I love your blog and think you are a very talented cardmaker. I will certainly be following your blog in future.Sue.x
