In Color Flowers with my Slice Machine

I haven't posted in a few days....so not like me. It's not that I haven't been stamping, I have, it's just that I haven't really liked anything that I've turned out....one of those little slumps, I guess. I saw Dawn McVey show a little tutorial on making distressed vintage looking paper flowers, and so I tried it out myself. I like how they turned out. She used 3 different sized punches for her flowers, but since I can't seem to put down my Slice Machine lately, I thought I would use it to make my flowers.

Sorry the past few days of images haven't been that great....as I said earlier, my little trusty steed (camera) broke last week, and I bought a replacement, but it's just not as good. It doesn't focus as well, I it's just a bunch of blurry garbage when I try to get close ups. I guess it's time to pull out the big guns. I've avoided using my good camera, mainly because I'm lazy, and my little point and shoot is so much handier. Perhaps today, I will get some time and can play around with my big camera and lighting and such. It's been a far cry from my photography classes in college, (mind you I used a dark room...what's that?) but perhaps I can remember a few things and get some better images. I did consult my best friend, Kaycee, who is a photographer. She gave me some great tips on lighting, I just haven't put them to use. Like I say, I'm lazy! But if you want to see some great photography you should visit her website. She was up here visiting a few weeks ago, and took some amazing pictures of my boys. I'm going to have one of them done up on a huge piece of canvas, but there were just so many good pics, that I'm having a tough time deciding....when does that ever happen?
