2 Cards Photographed With A Light Box

I made my own light box out of card board and a sheet. Very primitive, so homemade that I will not show you how it turned out.   Just go on line and look up how to make a photography light box and you will find oodles of demos.  The Big thing for me is it captures the true colors of the paper and coloring I do so I can study my work in order to improve.  I couldn't see before, maybe I shouldn't, but I do want to see where I should improve.
So Here are the two cards in the light box

I cannot believe the true colors are showing on the papers and the Copics I used.

 Wild Orchid flowers and PaperTrey Ink tiny tags
 I made charms to hang from the flowers and then cut and tucked the No 22247 Sweet out of the paper to slide my image in, instant embellishment.

The Second Card

I glitter glued around the scallops and the Birthday Wishes.
 Tilda is so vibrant now

The ribbons are in rivots  to make a book type opening

How the card looks opened

Thank you girls for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the cards.
Have a great weekend,  Kelly
