If you didn't check out the SplitCoastStampers Whipper Snapper Featured Designer gallery, or the blogs of this month's featured designers, you might want to! Great inspiration for any stamper, not just Whipper Snapper fans!
Here's another card I made using the flower image and a sentiment from Think Happy Thoughts. I kept this card clean and simple, and used clear fresh colors.
I received a few questions recently that I thought I would take time to answer with photos. Sometimes, it's just easier that way! Click on the photos to see them larger...
On this post, Michele wanted to know what I did to the center of the girl's flowers...
They are quite simple, actually! I colored them with markers, adding a bit more shading to the left side, and then added a touch of glitter to the right side for sparkle. I like to use a Zig 2 Way Glue pen (I've had the same glue pen for YEARS!) to apply a bit of adhesive, and then add an ultra fine translucent glitter. It allows the color on the paper to show through the glitter, giving the kind of sparkle I really like!
I was also recently asked by Bev on this post to share info on how I photograph my cards. I keep this process simple, because it works for me. Being someone who loves photography, you might think that I would use my BIG camera, a photo tent, fancy lights, and maybe even a tripod. I have those things for other photography, but for the sake of time and space, I choose to do things very simply for my paper craft projects. The photos aren't perfect, but it's what works for me.
I use two (sometimes three) lamps on my work space. I set the card on either a coordinating sheet of 12x12 paper, or a 12x12 piece of white chipboard. Depending on how distracting (cluttered) my desk is, I sometimes prop up a second piece of white chipboard behind the project as well. But, not always.
In the photo above, you can see the lamps on either side of the photo. Usually there are three lamps on my table, but one is currently over baby chickens and ducks. *grin* I use a 100 watt Reveal bulb in each lamp, and set my point-and-shoot camera (Canon G9) to the "indoor" setting.
See...nothing fancy! Hope that's helpful, Bev!
