Garbage

I think I probably took at least 10 photos of this card and no matter what I did, it wasn't coming out right.  The colors are all wonky and the whole thing looks totally screwy!  But.....it is what it is and I'm tired of trying to get a good picture of it.  In other words, I just gave up!

The little raccoon is from the Love Bandit set - Hero Arts.   Not only was is impossible to get a good photo of it but it took two days to finally come up with an idea on how to get that raccoon on a card and have it look right.  I saw the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches though and that seemed to make it all come together - so I'll enter it in their sketch challenge this week!


Thanks for stopping by.............and have a great weekend

Love this card, Lynn, super image and I love the sentiment. I've had the same problem today trying to take a photo of a card, just couldn't get the red to look red. It came out looking orangey every time. So frustrating! xx

Your card is really cute! I know what you mean when you say you had trouble photographing your card. I go through that all the time...(Not that I'm saying your a bad photographer...I get that award! Smile) Sometimes it's just the light etc...

Isn't it frustrating to get a good photo?!! But it looks adorable to me. Nothing this cute in our garbage can! Although come to think of it, a racoon, no matter how cute, can make a mess if he gets in the garbage can! Have a good weekend, Lynn.

Nana Connie said...

Oh, I love everything about this card, Lynn! The raccoon is adorable, your coloring is wonderful, the dimension you got attaching the raccoon, the stitched circle with ground and sky (!! oh, my!!), the polka dots... yep, loving everything. Great take on the sketch. :-D

Brenda said...

It doesn't look screwy to me Lynn, it is simply adorable! I love this coon in the trash can-he definitely looks like a partner in crime kind of coon. lol Love your take on the sketch and love this card my friend. Hugs, Brenda

I'm chuckling at your 'garbage'...would that mine looked so good. I don't see a thing wrong with the photo, and I think this is just one darling & cute card. Great work at following the sketch, and you just can't beat that raccoon popping out of the can like this image! Love the colors, and you can come do my garbage any time! TFS & Hugs (PS...liked the title with this image...it made me smile)

Such a cute card. I think his brother comes to visit my patio every so often to check to see if there's any cat food left. I had the same issue with my cards the last couple of days with getting the lighting just right to take a photo.

Margaret said...

Well, I think it looks perfectly wonderful! The background anchors the lil' cutie perfectly and I love the sentiment! Such a fun Valentine! I do know what you mean about photos. So many times the card looks a million times better than the photo and I don't have a clue how to fix that...

What a sweet card... adorable partner in crime!

Diane said...

I think your picture turned out great. What a super cute raccoon, papers and card design Lynn.

Still raining here, so far since Oct 1 we have had 27" of rain, I am looking forward to a little sun any day now.
