This week's Featured Stamper is Carolina Little.
I chose this card of Carolina's to case:
My daughter and I both play piano and we have lots of friends and teachers who will appreciate this musical card. The dots on the staves are meant only to imply music and are purely decorative (at least I think they are, I haven't tried humming them! lol!).
The piano stamp is from Sparkle and Sprinkle (yes, really - I've never heard of them, either, but now I've found them online, so I'll have to take a look! I bought the stamp at Stamp Art last week). The 'staff' stamp is from Background Basics: Retro from Papertrey, stamped in Memento London Fog ink, with Copic dots.
This card is a perfect example of why I use black so often for my cards. This card is really pretty in real life, but my photography/picture editing skills leave this photo looking quite flat, I think because of the lower contrast between the white and the silver than if I had used black. I recently purchased Photoshop Elements, so that will be my next big adventure, to see if I can become more consistent in the quality of my photos. Any advice?
Edited to add:
Here it is after a quick auto-fix in Photoshop. I think it's better - the colours are a bit truer. I've got A LOT to learn though!
PS - for those who asked, Tuesday is the first day back to school for my kids. I've been with them (and my husband) 24/7 since last Friday, and am ready for some alone time, thank you.;-)
