Challenges & Camera Playing

I have some fun challenges I wanted to join in today, and I am also trying different camera adjustments. See what you think.

I'm starting with Virginia's View Challenge #11 clean slate, Less is More #205; Black, metallic and one other color, and finally, Crazy 4 Challenges; clean & simple.  All my type of style :)

I used Add a Little Dazzle, Perfect Peacock metal sheet [I adore this color!!], along with a label maker sentiment.  I took this photo by a window.  One thing about these metal sheets, they do not photograph well.  However, being by the window fixes that, and shows what the color actually is.

We'd love you to display our banner 


I used an old Stampendous Rose image that I stamped, and then water colored.  My sentiment is one from the [so generous] Hannelie.  She has some super fun, free download sentiments on her blog, Desert Diva. [thanks Hannelie!]  I used an Ott light and set my camera on A [aperture] 1.8.  I am loving the bright vivid color of this photo, and that the card is really in focus, while the background is not.  I think I might be on to something here! :)  My opposite for the OLC is lime green and hot pink.

  OLS

So what do you think of my photographs?  Different set ups, but I am liking both of them.


Thanks for stopping by~ If you have a question, please leave an email so I can answer you :)

Two gorgeous cards Vicki! The turquoise metal sheets are my favourite too ... and they are gorgeous as palm fronds! LOVE it paired with the label maker sentiment.

And the rose ... wow! Beautiful in those vivid and stunning colours. I have this stamp ... now need to pull it out and show it some love! :) Your camera settings are working, girl!! I need you to come over and give me some lessons. My pics have gone for OK to bad recently.

Anyways, thanks for sharing and playing along at Happy Little Stampers CAS and Sketch challenges! Loll xx

Love these cards, and your photography, Vicki! I especially admire the photo with the blurred background - I believe it shows off your card to perfection!
