Camera Shy

Thursday, June 27, 2013

This card did not want to be photographed.  No matter what I did, change the time of day, change the background, it didn't matter.  I never did like having my picture taken either.  I guess that's why I'm always the one with the camera.  Everyone counts on me to take the pictures at family events and that's fine with me!
To create the XOXO banner strips I sprayed black color shine spary onto
white paper using an animal print stencil.
I let that dry and then dripped gold color shine on top of the black.
When that was dry, I die cut the borders and then sprayed them with a fixative.  The color shine sprays will come off on your hands and if they get wet they will reactivate. 
 To prevent both of those things, I sprayed the fixative.
Hope you're having a great week!

  3. I hate when a card isn't easy to photograph. Glad you finally got a good shot! I didn't realize that Color Shine needed a fixative. Thanks for the tip.

  4. How funny! A card that's camera shy! Love your take on the challenge - this one has me stumped! The gold with the b&w is so elegant - maybe it's a celebrity!!

  5. Camera shy, good way to put it. I love how you positioned the black on the white, and just the right splash of gold.
