Well, I do love your card and I agree without is better. That is why I have never used a light tent. (Crazy huh?)

Totally agree hun - without. I don't use one as I find if you're not careful it can bleach out the colour.

Fab card btw - love the little frog xxx

Hi sweetie I have to say on the close up it looks better without, however on the next one the colour looks more true. I brought my light tent early last year off amazon it was on a deal & was really inexpensive I got to thinking tho after a while that it was doing anything for my photos so I stopped using it.... Then I had put it somewhere so safe I couldnt find it. When I've used it on my last 2 however boy have I missed it I forgot how good it was & it wasnt that it wasnt good in the first place I had taken it for granted if you get what I mean shug. Anyway on my pics the poem I did for payton-lea I took pics in the daylight in the light tent. My last SC card tho I took at 11pm at night in my light tent with just 1 light pointing at it. Light tent are good & beneficial as they bring a truer colour however you do have to have things set right......I'm still practicing hun but the way I see it if professionals use them then there is a reason for that.
Gosh I hope I havnt made you fall asleep at the your computer shug I just wanted to give you my honest oppinion. I'm also playing catch up as I've missed a few of your posts hun sorry sweetie......
Your card by the way in ALL photo's looks amazing & no matter how you take the photo you cannot take away the fact that your card is gorgeous hun.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
P.S. I wish good luck with the SC GDT call with all my heart hun mmwah

thanks everyone!
Vick...I am totally still awake :)
& love your opinions :) thanks for sharin them!!!
I know prof photographers use tents...so I had to try it...but I really think the sharpness is better without! Oh well I guess there are reasons for the light/true colorations in photos but I think for my purposes I will stick to my antique dresser :)
