Wellington Take 2!

Ok, here’s my second post of the evening featuring Wellington again. The orange seemed a good choice when I started the card, now I’m not so sure! I recently reset my camera (my son got fed up with me keep on asking to borrow his phone to take pictures!). The photos do seem to be coming out clearer and truer in colour to the real thing. The only trouble is that the best ones seem to be the ones taken on my carpet in front of my lounge patio door (so much for my photo tent and tripod!) This means that I can only take them ‘flat’, so you can’t see the layers of decoupage, but as I said, the colour’s much better, so I suppose it’s a case of give and take!
