Just For You...

Pastel colors are fun to work with, but can make you reach for the Advil bottle when trying to photograph least for an amateur like me...LOL. When I photographed this card in indirect light, it was a little TOO indirect, and the colors looked very dark in spite of the white background.  When I photographed it in brighter light, the pale-colored details didn't show up well.

I compromised, by using my light box...and a little more patience...and here's the final result...Just For You...

There are bits of purple and pink in the paper, so I used a purple Prima flower as an accent to bring those colors forward. And that layer of purple beneath the flower and eyelash fiber? It's a dyed (with a mister and diluted Distress Ink refill) and gathered piece of a used fabric softener sheet...they make fun textural layers! (An easy way to get a few of these dryer sheets ready to go is to wet a clean bath towel, and throw in 3-4 sheets as the towel dries...sheets are ready to go and your towel is now REALLY soft! :) )

I die cut a flourish from cardstock, then covered it with a light coating of clear made the flourish bend a bit, so I left it that way to add dimension!
