Birthday Sails...

So, has anyone noticed the significant difference in the quality of my last two photos compared to all of the previous ones?! After all of my complaining about being a bad camera-woman, I think I found that I either don't know how to set my (brand new) camera correctly for my needs, or my camera is just not as good as my daughter's! I used her camera for the last two photos, and besides the shadow at the bottom and the glare, I think the quality is 10 times better! Finally...who knew I just needed to steal Tia's camera :O)

I stamped the sailboat on Whisper White in Black Staz-On, colored the boat with SU! markers, then used a VersaMark Marker over the sails and the boat. I poured clear embossing powder over the VersaMark ink and heat set it (note the glare in my picture :O). Once it cooled, I brayered Baja Breeze followed by Pacific Point for the background.

**Please note, that it's important to carefully wipe the embossed image after brayering to prevent smudging on the areas that are not embossed. Yes, I know from experience (gained last night :O). Look closely and you'll see what I mean...and tried to cover up! LOL

All supplies are listed in my SCS gallery.
