Tricks and Treats Broomstick Lucy

Today is Freebie Friday at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  I've been wanting to make these fun felt spiral flowers for awhile now and found a great, easy tutorial from my friend Yvonne.  Don't forget to check out the SCRS blog for the tutorial and a chance to win Cruisin' Chloe!

Paper: Basic Grey Eerie
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is Amuse
Felt, Pearls, Copics, Crystal Stickles, and Rhinestones

I had some questions about my post yesterday, so I wanted to post some quick answers. I typically craft at night, so I don't really get the chance to take pictures with natural light. I have a 75 wat bulb in my lamp. It's pretty bright and intense, but I usually only have it on for a few minutes while I'm photographing.

I always take pictures with the flash off. The lamp typically gives enough light to do that. Plus, I always take pictures with the macro function on to get all of the details. It's so bad now that when I turn it off, I think 'normal' pictures are blurry, lol.

I will work on instructions for PS, but I can't promise that it will come any time soon. It's almost Manager's Conference time for my day job, so until that's over, I will be extremely busy.  But I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!  It's almost the weekend!
