Swimming Lucy & Photography

CTMH CS, Liquid Glass, Rub-Ons
   Stamp ~ Swimming Lucy,  Basic Grey Bitter Sweet, Black Embossing Powder, Gel Pen,
Misc Ribbon, Chalk, Template, Rhinestones, Copics

I've had this card on my craft table for at least 2 weeks. I heat embossed the image with  black embossing powder, when i colored it it ran a bit on her face.. dang!... I spent to much time on it to redo so i left it and put it together this morning. Hope it's not that noticeable. I ♥ this paper!!

I'm trying to keep up with my photography skills so i shot this card in manual setting. If your interested... I had the camera set at... Shutter Speed 1/40 {Light meter... center zero} Aperture f/8.0 and  ISO  was 200 here. {100 would be bright outdoor light}  No flash, but one daylight bulb in my photo box.

A friend asked me to take school pictures of her 2 kids. I'm excited to do that!! :)  I did a family of 9 over Christmas. I'll post them in the near future.
Well, I played long enough today, It will take me a week to clean up. I have quite the mess! Charlie took the boys ice fishing this morning. They called this afternoon  and said they caught a 14 inch bass. {dinner tomorrow} :)
Well friends thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
