Sheetload of Bellas!

It took me about 3 nights to get them done, but it was worth it! I love how they all turned out, and with the sketch from Sheetload of Cards, it wasn't that hard to design them at all! I'm not one to normally mass produce cards so I made 2 of each design to keep from getting bored!

Billboardabella: First I stamped all the images, then I airbrushed a really light creamy color around all of them to take away the stark white edges. Next I colored them in with my beloved Copics, and then did some paper piecing on all of them using some really old Kelly Panacci paper I have, but still love.

Some really old Primas completed the sketch. I'm so proud of how I've been using my massive old stash lately! I always say if I love something, I'll eventually use it and it's definitely been proven true!

You'll notice on Billboardabella I changed up the materials just a bit. She just didn't look right with that dark pink cardstock so I just added more of the coordinating Kelly Panacci paper and a bit of Papertrey ribbon. Hope you like them!

Other materials used: white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; Rose Red cardstock - Stampin' Up!; blue patterned paper - My Mind's Eye; black Brilliance ink - Tsukineko; "thanks a latte" - My Favorite Things' Hot Stuff set; "thinking of you" - Papertrey Ink's Simple Little Things Limited Edition set; white brads - Pink Hedgehog Papercrafts.
