Friendly Challenge

Can ya guess where the challenge might be?? Yup! On Nichole's blog....a "Friends 'Til the End" challenge this time. I was putting away some goodies as I am going on a scrapbooking retreat this month and I came across a scallop chipboard SU frame. Into the appropriate home it went.....for about seven minutes, when I pulled it back out and began to ink it up! That was where I started with this card. The chipboard is inked with Raspberry Fizz ink and is popped up on foam tape. The word 'friend' is stamped in Raspberry Fizz and retraced with Pink Spica pen (love these!!). I have to apologize for the picture....I really needed better lighting to take it, especially since the card base is hunter green. If I used the flash, it was completely washed out, if I kept the flash off....its well, dark, as you can see! I did try to correct it a tad in Photoshop, in the end, I chose this pic though since (if you click on it to enlarge it) it at least shows off some of its sparkle!

  3. Very pretty - I, too, just started my blog thanks to the PTI challenges - it's been a blast - I wonder if anyone knows the trick to photographing cards really well and getting accurate colors...
