Cute Card Thursday 'Create A Scene' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to create a scene on your card. I have used one of the new Alva stamps and the toadstool from the Jingle Jangle Collection and other Magnolia stamps.
I took the photo last night using my new Mini Photo Studio, the colours are very good on the main image, it's just the stamped image on the base card which looks a bit pale I think I need to have a bit of a practice positioning the lights! I think it might be better with the white backdrop so I will have a try later when I've had my hair cut. It hasn't been done since July so it will be a shock going red and short again!!
This one is taken with a white backdrop, I think the one above is better. Will have to experiment with it I think!
Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Sitting Alva, Toadstool, Edwin's House, Log, Ant, Toadstools, SU Sanded, Hero Arts - Sentiment
Tools: Prismacolors, Glossy Accents, Chalks, SU Punch, Button
