The new Phindy's Place Challenge Blog was launched last week and the first challenge is very friendly - Anything Goes. Of course you must use one of Phindy's images on your project but that is easy because there are so many great ones to choose from.
I am a bit frustrated because the colour on this photo does not do the card justice and no matter how much I played with it in Photoshop I could not make it look the actual card. The purple rose looks a bit dark but if I lighten it, the mat and image look too light. I finally gave up and have decided I need to take either photography lessons or Photoshop lessons. Although come to think of it, the real problem could be my fancy homemade photo booth - a white sheet wrapped around a cookie sheet leaning against the wall on my kitchen counter so I can take advantage of the under cabinet lighting - lol. Because of the thickness of the lace, everything is popped up and very dimensional.
I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Belli - Die Cuts
Cooking It Up With Katie - Purple and 3 of something (Flowers)
Scrappy Frogs - Pick 3 (Die Cut, Lace, Digi Image)
The image from Phindy's Place is called Grande Dame and has been coloured using a combination of Prismacolor & Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons. The paper is from Paper Pizazz. The cardstock is Recollections (Michaels) and my stash. Other supplies used: Flowers (bridal supply store), Ribbon (Fabricland), Lace (my stash), Pearl Stickers (Recollections from Michaels), Leaf & Branch Punches (Martha Stewart), Chalk (Mungyo) and Die Cut Mat (cut from Cricut Sentimentals cartridge).
