Play Date Cafe # 71 - Colour Splash and a photo using my new "box" thingy!

This doesn't happen very often - this is my second posting of the day! - if you haven't seen my earlier post, and you want a chance to win £100 worth of stash then look at my post below for details..... 

Anyway back to this posting and thought I would get in just before closing time on The Play Date Cafe challenge this week!

Its colour splash time and here is their photo how vibrant are those colours - gorgeous!  They have left it up to us to select which "splash" of colour we want to use. 

One of my fav colours is turquoise and I knew I had some gorgeous velvet ribbon in that colour and so that was my starting point for this card.  I then remembered buying some gorgeous Artemio stamps when I was at a craft show a few weeks back.  They were very reasonably priced. 

Anyway I've used one on my card below.  I've taken two photos to try out my new Portable photo box thingy:-

Taken using photo box

and one how I usually take my photos on the windowsill!

So can you notice the difference - I know it is only slight but I think I do get a better photo using the box.  I like the "uncluttered background" and also think my photo is clearer.  I still need to practice a bit more and hopefully as some folks sing ....things can only get better........ LOL

Happy crafting!

HI Tina, how have you been? I am happy to see you've played with us at the Cafe this week. Your stamps are beautiful. I never heard of Artemio before, but I like what I see. ANd I DO see a difference in your photos now that you are using the light box. It does make your card crisper. Big hugs to you!

Gorgeous card Tina. The photo using your new box makes the ribbon look my vibrant. Cross fingers and I am going to say it quietly, Tony seems to have solved my computer problem while we were out last night.
