Opus Gluei # 49 Sparkle

I hate how my camera has a mind of its own and doesn't see the colours I do.... have been wandering the house searching for good light because my usual spot "Doesn't do yellow".  Now there ladies (I'm addressing this to the Poobahs), that's one VERY GOOD REASON why monochrome is me!  Its so easy to photograph! 

Okay, whinge over.....

So the card.... well it looks better in real life, bit like its maker, and it has a huge list of ingredients.  There's some Francheville Tangerine Flowers DP, assorted bits of custard coloured card bits, and the SU sentiment from their Inspired by nature set.  I matched the iridescent embossing of the flowers by stamping the sentiment in the background as well as in copper on the centre strip.  The butterfly escaped from my March kit from Taylored Expressions, and the gold gauze ribbon was hanging about looking for a home and so was the foil.

I wanted to avoid anything remotely black and white, but I think this would look more "passionate" if the tangerine leapt off a black page.  Next time.


  1. I like this.... and i can never get my camera to see the same colours i do either!
    Thanks for visiting me.... glad you liked the witch.... her robe is actually a very deep purple.
    see you again i hope. lynx

  2. This card is beautiful. I love all the different shades in here. Out cameras must be related, mine different colors in the same session. LOL. I am taking an online class in May which promises to teach me to take better photos with the camera I already have. (It's a little point and shoot camera. I don't want to spend a lot of money for the big fancy camera that I won't use to it's potential. Let me know if you want the info...) Thanks for playing with us at Opus Gluei.

  3. (tee hee hee) - my camera does the same stuff, I can soooo empathize with you! I love the lovely color here and I think actually it photographed beautifully! So pretty but not over the top (which is so me - again LOL), you do such classy work - help me please!!! Thanks for being inspired and participating in the challenge, love seeing what you come up with!

  4. Holy cow it shounds like a few of us have the same camera! I think your cards are always lovely, I'm envious when I see what you create! And thank for the comments you leave on my blog, I REALLY appreciate reading them!


love to know what you think.......
