Challenges

Hey! I'm back again! This is the first time I have ever combined three challenges into one. This card is for the Scribble This Challenge #2, where we are to work on color levels. If you want to learn more about taking pictures and making them look their best, go by and check out these challenges! First of all, I have taken about 1,000 pictures of this card! The lighting just seems to be great today for pictures (not good for a challenge working on color levels)! :) I did get a couple of darker pictures, these are the only ones that I used the eye dropper tool on, the other's turned TOO white. The other Challenge is for Digiments. That is where I got this great sentiment, they have some great ones over there! Go by and check them out! The next one is for Color Chef Challenge #10, where we are suppose to use the colors Black, White, and a punch of color (our choice). I just found this challenge yesterday and thought I would play along! Go by there and check it out, challenges are always fun! :) I made this card for my wonderful husband for our anniversary coming up on June 20. I tried to make it manly, I used scor lines and used little dots like Ashley did on her card. I hope he likes it!

Here are two of the darker before pictures.
Here are the same pictures with both steps done.

Here are some more pictures, with just the first step.
Supplies:
Paper- Turquoise, white, and black cs
Stamp- Studio G, PTI-mega mixed messages
Ink- StazOn-jet black
Accessories- Black satin ribbon, sentiment printed from Digiments, black marker for, bone folder for scor lines, hand drawn heart
Have a Blessed Night!

This is gorgeous! I love the black, white, and turquoise together. It's a very stunning combination. And the score lines do a fabulous job of framing it. Thanks for playing along with the Digiments challenge.

Love these cards, and the tut on how to fix dark pics. Very nice. Your family is beautiful.
My friend lives in Texas and had a funnel cloud go over their house last night. I hope you didn't have the same. (I know Texas is HUGE), my friend has been without power for 24 hours.

Love and Light!

Cool Winter! I haven't been brave enough to crack the camera manual and Lisa's tutorials look doable. Your example is amazing!
