I have the pleasure of showing you my card using Alfresco. Think Summer and BBQs!
Used the gingham border stamp from Debonair to create my picnic table... or blanket. Added a doily 'cause I like doilies, lol. I think it looks like a plate too. I'm still not very good at coloring with Copics, I thought about paper piecing solid cardstock together to create the burger but decided to give coloring a go because I like creating texture with the Colorless Blender. If you look at the bun, you can see where I let the colorless blender ink bleed into the paper a bit in a random fashion. I like that it makes it more realistic and not just a flat coloring. I keep toothpicks in my room, but not in my kitchen :) love creating little flags with them. A twine wrapped around the base finishes this card off.
I had a mini photography + lighting lesson from my pro-photographer brother in law. This was taken without a flash, just my regular lights and a tripod. I'm still experimenting but I think the lighting isn't as harsh, which is definitely an improvement. I think. Anyone have anymore expert tips?
