Less is More 51

Monday, January 23, 2012

The other day I made a tent card that I was originally going to link up to this week's Less is More challenge to make a card with a hole it it.  But the card was a whole lot "more" than "less" so I decided to go back to the drawing board.

Then I thought I'd incorporate the colors from the ColourQ challenge while I was at it but I ended up wasting so much time trying to figure out what to do for my card that I missed the ColourQ deadline.  Rats!  I also discovered that it is clearly beyond my photographic capabilities to get a decent picture of a card with a hole in it.  I wanted to photograph the card open showing that the sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card and visible through the hole, but each photo I took was worse than the last.  The hole was creating a terrible shadow that I didn't know how to fix.  I ended up putting a bit of dotto on the inside of the card to hold it closed and took the photo you see here.

And the colors look way off too.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the edge of the hole is lined with Bravo Burgundy.  The other two circles are Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo.  I alwalys have trouble photographing cards that are predominately white, but this one was a doozy!

Thanks for stopping by!
