More cards

Busy busy busy! Ive signed up to the UKS Cyber Crop and Im a Hufflepuff. Not sure how I'm going to keep up as its humungous but I have a very friendly 3rd Year Jay looking after me, thank you Jay, Im sure I shall be asking lots more silly questions very soon.

Managed to make another card for this weeks Dare using some long neglected stamps. the background text is a Purple Onion stamp and its so versatile it's probably my most used stamp, stamped in versamark for that watermark effect. It's olde worlde writing that you can't read, or I cant anyway! The main image is a beautiful stamp from a Sunday International UM sheet of botanical images, stamped onto chalked shrink plastic and coloured with watercolour pencils. I tried to take a fancy close up pic to show you the Latin text it has on it...but my photography skills are lacking and they all came out blurry. You'll just have to trust me on this one, its got Latin botanical words on it. Well I'm assuming their botanical... they could be really rude and I'd never know!

And a couple of leaving cards I've been asked to make. Thanks Lythan for your help with the wording when I had card makers block. You're a star!

Ive been looking at other peoples pics they take of their cards and trying to take inspiration for different angles. Im no photographer, I just use my cameras auto or macro and hope for the best but these have come out alright seeing as the light's pretty bad today. Happy Cardmaking, Scrapping, Crafting or whatever you're up to today!

Those cards are just so perfect Rhi. And I'm not a big inserts person but those matching coloured ones are just wow!

Stunning cards. I do love the ones with writing as backgrounds. they look antique & I so love the vintage feel. I used to be crap at stamping but am getting better now, its all about practise. As for photography, I stick to full front views of cards as people moan they can't see them properly if I email them !! Can't please everyone....

Lovely cards Rhi - I'm pants at photographing my cards too! My old scanner used to scan them beautifully but my newer all inone scanner printer (which is rubbish - don't buy a Lexmark whatever you do) won't scan them well at all.
