a little bird told me.....

My giddy aunt, second post in one night!

Just wanted to pop on my entry for this weeks Less is More challenge, 'one layer card - off the edge'. Well, this theme nearly sent me over the edge! What should I do? Swirls, flowers, butterflies would all work well. But I finally decided on this stamp set by Woodware.

I always need to put a bit of kraft card at the back of the light box when photographing my less is more card. Otherwise the edges of the card just disappear 'cos there is so much white!

Woodware have some great images and i like this bird cage very much. Super card and very contemporary:-)

If you own a daylight crafting lamp you can use this to light your card from the top instead of using a light box. I find i get better images this way. Hope this is of help:-)

This is just great Liz, fab card!
I always have a back backdrop for my white cards, I think it stops the camera from getting indigestion from all that white!
See you next time!

Hi there, love your card, simple and fun, pretty colouring too. The little bird looks like he's on his way back from an adventure:0) xxx

Liz, I love the bird cage. Every time I see a birdcage stamp, I think I MUST get one!

When photographing a white card, I generally use a black background. Then in your photo editing program you can adjust the balance of black and white better!
