Hello everyone. Hope that you have had a wonderful day . Thank you for calling in once more.
I have made another vintage card after finding some more Graphic 45 papers in my stash .

Sorry still not good at photos . Used camera and under light too.
More practice needed.
Image is Paris Socialite from Stamps Happen .
It was inked in brown and coloured with chalks , dry and wet. and blue marker for earings , rings and buttons . The Whisper White card with the image was then sponged with Peach Parfait and Summer Sun .
The flowers are from my stash .
Wish I could add more elements to give interest .
What do you think I could have added , if anything?
Enjoy the rest of your night then.
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-anne.

Looks great to me Shirley Anne! I am not normally a fan of "vintage style" ...but I like these you have done! Maybe you could just add a sheer floaty ribbon or a bit of bling or shine on the flowers???

Hi Shirley-anne,
I love this image! My daughter loves anything to do with Paris or fashion. I like how you've embellished it, really no need for more.
The best photography tips I've tried are:
1. Place item in front of a window with natural light (but not direct sunlight)
2. Don't use the flash on your camera for true colors.
3. Stage your item with a neutral background (I use a large paper or a blanket) and stand it up if possible rather than hovering over it with the camera.
Hope these tips may be useful to you. My pics have improved using them.
