Can You See My Brain Waving?

Hello.  Welcome.  I have finally succeeded in making a card that is impossible to photograph.  Yeah, way to go.......... not.  So I have included three of the best.  Kinda, the cream of the crap as far as photographic skills go.  Although I think this one could be a challenge to the best of you.  And I am far from that!!  I think I shall hand it to my man and see if he can make a better job of it.  It's a big pity cos it's actually quite a stunner.  Hopefully you can extrapolate from the pictures.  

This is actually the best one.  It's all gold mirror card

Ooh look, a selfie ROFL

Under natural light the gold turns to silver!!!  But you can see the rhinestones!!!

I embossed my mirror card with Cheery Lynn Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate using Sizzix round diffuser plate.  This left me an unembossed round area.  I cut Cheery Lynn Happy Hippo from the same mirror card and just used his smile.  The flowers were cut using Cheery Lynn BAF#3 Embellishments.  I cut lots and arranged them around my circle and then added a few to the sentiment as well.  Then I had a brain wave and added a gold rhinestone to each flower.  I cut a frame from a different gold mirror card.

  1. Embossing on mirror card gives awesome results, I can see it's gorgeous despite the difficulties of the photographer...

  2. Wow, Gail, this is lovely. Your embossed background is wonderful. Good luck and thanks for joining in on the fun at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.

  3. Oh Gail, I can see your card has a real WOW factor to it and a super design. I hate too when I have made a great card and it's hard for photography. Although it's my hubby that does all my photos for me I can hearing him cursing taking pics lol.
