Dawn McVey Color Challenge

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #8 Dawn is having another wonderful color challenge. I love participating in these. I love the colors she always picks and i love stalking her blog and reading about her on twitter. I can't get enough of her beautiful talent for making and creating art. So here is my take on the challenge. I hope you like it. Please leave a comment good or bad. I always learn from my mistakes so if you have any suggestions on photography or anything else, please let me know. Enjoy!

I wanted to add a side view to show the dimension of the sentiment and the flower.
I used pop ups.

Very pretty! I crochet my own flowers too! I'm not good at taking photos but I always 'brighten' them up a bit in Photoshop.

Mary said...

Love the flowers! Gorgeous!
No advice on the photography - I really struggle with getting true color myself.

I am impressed with your flowers (I haven't mastered THAT yet!) and I really like how you popped up the sentiment! Cute with the three panels!

Mimi said...

Love all of the dimensions on the card!
My only advice for photographing a card is to pick a window sill and photograph the card in natural light. Not when the sun is at high noon, but early sun or late evening (7ish) in the summer. Of course it will also depend on how your window faces.
experiment and good luck!
