Less is More Week 7

A masculine card, I should be used to these with so many men in the family, (I have 4 brothers and lots of next generation men too).


I love this image a digi stamp from NanaVic, as usual I have done it digitally, paper pieced the shirt and overalls hat and umbrella, then shaded them, I then added a background  and "made" rain that is why the card is not white, it wouldn't have shown up the rain! when printed I added 3D gloss to the puddle.  Hope it meets the criteria. Sorry the photo is not to good, waited until too late and then took it at my desk. then took it in the kitchen under fluorescent  light, neither of them too good, I'm afraid.  I had the quote off Crafters Digital Art Centre, when Nana Vic offered the digi as a freebie and lots of crafters gave sentiments to match the image, it was great fun.

I made the following card to enter the challenge, but was too late

  9. Fantastic card Faith and especially like the realistic puddle:-)

    If you have a craft lamp with a daylight bulb you might try taking your picture using this as your light source. If you take a picture off centre you should not get too many shadows and it will be better illuminated.
    You can also play with your image using the Windows own Picture Viewer where you can adjust the light, contrast and mid tones of our image. HTH:-)
