Color Inspiration #30



The colors for Kristina Werner's color inspiration are old olive, certainly celery, sahara sand and whisper white. This week, I decided to think about a design before she posted her color challenge. I think it made it a bit easier.



I have yet to take a good picture, though. This was the best of about 30 that I took in all different lighting. If anyone has some suggestions for taking one that actually looks as good as the card, please let me know!


I used SU's It's Snow Time and Nature's Secret stamp sets. The snowflakes are stamped in craft white and embossed with SU winter white EP. The primary image is stamped in olive and mounted with dimensionals. The larger ribbon is celery with the little one being olive. Enjoy!

I love the snow with the green! Very nice!

For me, if I can't get a good picture in my house, I take the card outside and risk looking like an idiot to my neighbors... sometimes the light is just perfect out there!

Lovely card!
You need a light tent to get consistent lighting for your card 24/7. You can make one out of a box or purchase one online. Want me to drop a hint in DH's email box? =D

Here's a link for the home made one: http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/07/how-to-diy-10-macro-photo-studio.html
