This card, featuring yogabella, came from Theresa Haire. Theresa was my "send to" partner in the May Postabella exchange. I love the green mat - it kind of looks like mine! Bellas top is nice and glittery, just like my favorite instructor likes to wear for TurboKick. The radio has a metallic sheen to it, too. It looks like the same medium Kandi used for Bella's car, above. Ladies, what are you using for this? I need some of them to feed the mess on my desk! Thanks, Theresa!
Pam Gaynor sent me this beauty. I've always wondered how Pam's cards looked in person. I was pretty sure from the pictures that I've seen that she embossed the image with black and then colored it. Really cool. That's how it looks. The embossing gets shiny - perfect for blingy Bella! This would also solve my continual feathering problem with my Copics. The background rosy red is embossed with the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder. Sad to say, I have this folder and I don't think I've used it. I really need to, it is lovely, as is i-wish-i-looked-so-good-on-a-bikabella.
clickabella arrived in today's mail from Laurel Seabrook. My June Postabella card travelled all the way to Prospect Heights from Port Alberni, BC. Wow. That is about 2,161 miles. This is the first time that I have seen paper piecing in person. It seems so simple, but somehow I've been intimidated to try it. I am not sure that you can see that the two sentiment circles to the left are covered in iridescent glitter, as are Bella's shoes and necklace. I love it.
Somewhere in the mess are these cool little clips I bought so you can make a wall hanging out of individual pictures. I thought this would be so cool to do with cards and it looked like it would work, but I haven't seen them in months. I promise to keep cleaning. I also know there are at least two cards still MIA. One from Katie Cotton and another from Kim Docktor.
This last picture is a very precocious 10-year old trying to get in on the picture taking. Isn't Brian handsome? (BTW, I believe that is a Transformer weapon in his mouth, if you were wondering.)
