WANTED: Photographer

Wanted:  Looking for a professional photographer who is willing to work for pennies.  Skills required for this position are:  1) the abilitity to take clear and precise photos of the establishments paper crafts and other creative endevors that the owner might produce and
                    2) the abilitiy to photograph before mentioned creative endevors even if they are on brushed copper cardstock with iridecent ice embossed on them.
Please apply ASAP to the owner of this blog.

Ok.....ever had  project turn out GREAT but no one will ever know it because despite the 50-70 pictures (unfortunately, I am NOT exaggerating on this one) I have tried to take, none of them showed the fact that the brushed copper and the beads MATCH in real life or the fact that the pinecone is stamped in chocolate chip craft and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder.  You are just going to have to trust me on this when I say that this looks wonderful and everything matchs!!  This is the project that inspired this card.

I cut and embossed 3 Spellbinders Fleur de Lis on brushed copper and attached them on the diaganol to make my 3D ornament.  I threaded some nylon monofilament through and added the beads to the bottom and top.  The top is tied off on a hand made copper hanger using 26 gauge wire.  I then stamped the Small Pinecone Ornament from Just for Fun twice using SU's craft chocolate chip ink and embossed with iridecent ice embossing powder.   I cut out both pinecones and attached them back to back over the center portion of the monofilament.  Supplies:  Paper:  Brushed copper.  Inks:  SU's craft chocolate chip. Stamps:  Just For Fun Small Pinecone Ornament B2499.   Accessories:  Spellbinders Fleur de Lis S4-204, Big Shot, iridescent ice ep, heat gun, glue dots, monofilament, beads.

Thanks for stopping by again!!  I'm off to do some more decorating for the holidays!!

Beautiful project, Starla! Sometimes we just get those things that can't be photographed well. It doesn't matter who you are or what you may or may not be doing . . . it just happens!

Beautiful. What a great idea to make an ornament out of these die cuts. The copper is gorgeous.
