Another colour challenge.








Note if you are here for the Lily Pad Blog Hop please go to the next post down!

 
Here is a card I made with the challenge over at CR84FN21, the inspiration photograph shows dark red green and cream and I was really pleased with my card till I tried to photograph it.  The weather has been quite dull lately and all my photos show the green looking really dark and muddy.

 In real life the Green is so different and I have also sprayed with perfect pearls so it has a really lovely shimmer to it. Never mind I will enter it anyway.




















Just a short post tonight as my daughter needs some moral support.  She has just found out she has a big interview to go to next week and there is a lot of preparing to do.  I need to be on hand with cups of tea and snacks to help her through!!


Supplies: Hero Arts stampCG184 peacock. S4878 Old letter writing. Crushed Olive and Peeled paint distress inks. Cream ribbon, gems and button.

That peacock looks so beautiful on that watercoloured background! The gems on the tail are just beautiful! I know what you mean about lighting, sometimes it just does not want to play along! Good luck to your daughter!

It looks lovely Sally. Do you use any photo enhancing programmes? I find that can often fix my dull photos.
