SFYTT - Wreathabella

This Wreathabella Christmas card is for Jen's Sketch for You to Try and for someone on my Christmas card list. The Bella was colored using my Copics and then I used Dazzling Diamonds on the pom poms on her hat and boots, Spica glitter pen on her scarf and Glaze Gelly pen on all the berries in the wreath and hat. Then I cut and embossed the image using my Nestabilities die and added the photo corner and gems. The designer paper is a mix of Dashing Christmas paper which is retired and Bella Rose designer paper and the colored card stock I used was Real Red, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. I'm wishing I had photographed this card in the day light because my pictures always come out better when I do, but today I didn't have a chance. If anyone out there has a photo tent that they use to photograph their work, could you please leave me a comment or email and let me know whether you like it or not. I've never looked into getting one but I would consider it if I thought it would be a great thing to have.
Thanks for visiting!

How fun, great job Lynn!! I don't have a photo tent, but I do have 2 Ott lights that I use if I can't get a good daylight picture....so not sure if that helps at all, but I'm happy with the results I get with those:-) Hugs, Kelly

Lynn, I think your card is super and the photograph looks great! I struggle with my photography skills too! Somewhere on line I saw a homemade box made with foam core board. If I find it, I'll email you the info!
Meanwhile, Wreatabella is adorable!

Hey Lynn! I just wanted to tell you how gorgeous your card is! :) I also wanted to let you know that I was debating whether or not to get a photo tent and after talking to Taylor VanBruggen and Mary Fish about it, I decided it's worth it! :) Both women produce the most gorgeous pictures of their cards and I know they don't have extremely expensive cameras. I know Taylor got her photo tent from this website: http://americanrecorder.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=43&products_id=157

I have been able to find them a little cheaper on a few sites: pronto.com, amazon.com, and ebay.

I hope this helps! Good luck with your search! I am still doing my own little search! Hehe! If you find a great deal, let me know!

Lynn your card is very festive! I just want to sing fa-la-la-la & drink cider in front of the fireplace. My favorite part is the blinged out photo corner. TYFS!
