While the results are beautiful in person, I found it very hard to capture the colors with a camera so please forgive my poor photography skills.
Here we go:
I also made another card for my nephew in boot camp. This one was the worst to photograph! I actually have been debating about showing it but what the heck! The lion was stamped and embossed on rust cardstock and then lightened with bleach. The card it is mounted to is actually a craft paper color. I think the new light bulb in my lamp is causing my problem with colors; it's a new energy efficient bulb. I can only say it did not save me any energy with all the different ways I tried to capture the correct colors!
Parting thought for the day: Do the best you can, and don't take life too serious.
