Pearlicious

How many pearls are too many? Since I managed to use ten on this card, let's say the answer is eleven, eh? *wink* And if anyone reading is a fan of Project Runway, this post title is for you... and Blayne. Because with Blayne, everything is "licious". His dress is "girlicious", his drag name would be "Neon Licious". Frankly, he's annoyalicious, but I digress. And then there's Suede. Suede likes to talk about himself in the third person. Sarah thinks Suede needs to get a grip.

Ok, why do I watch this show again? Oh yeah, because Heidi Klum is hilarious. Not necessarily on the show, but have you ever seen her on Ellen or somewhere similar? Too funny. I love her. And I love Tim Gunn. And Michael Kors. And Nina Garcia. And the way Heidi says, "Nenagahseea" like it's one word. Ok, enough of that. hee hee.

Anyhow! Both the image and the sentiment were sent to me from fellow stampers. The image in a Bella image swap, and the sentiment from the WRAK forums on SCS. I couldn't even tell you who the sentiment is by, but I thought it fit the image perfectly with the little flowers on it.

And about that image... do you see anything missing? Anything, oh, let's say, slightly disturbing? As I was coloring the image, I was debating what to do for a floor. I usually like to do something at the bottom of the bella to sort of ground the image, rather than leaving it to float in space. As I looked at this, I considered my options. First I thought about drawing in a floor line, and then I thought maybe I'd just do a little shading around the base of the desk and chair... wait... where's her chair? What is she, glued to the desk by her upper thighs? I love this stamp, but I'm not sure I can get past that. It really bothers me. As you can see, it bothered me so much that I left her floating. lol. You think I'm kidding, but my mind will linger on this chairlessness for days.

Other than that though (lol), what do you think? Is it in, or is it out? ( <---another Project Runway reference.... my last, I swear.)

Details:
Stamp: Clickabella (Stamping Bella), Sentiment (unknown)
Ink: (Unknown)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey DP, White (unknown)
Other: Pink Satin Ribbon, Lots of sticky Pearls, Scalloped Punch (SU!), 1 1/2" Circle Punch, Copic Markers

That cracks me up. Maybe she's really a genie and floats in space without the need of a chair???

The card itself is adorable. Love the colors you chose.

I love this card! Love the DP, the pink ribbon, the pearls, and of course..the bella!

Lorie said...

OMGosh you are hilarious! Who sees those things? You! I would have never noticed! I would definitely say that 11 pearls would have been way to much but 10 is perfect! LOVE this card!

Dani said...

You are crackin' me up! Maybe there is a keyboard shelf that slides out and she is sitting on that. She's skinny enough! LOL! Great job on the card. I think you could get away with 11 pearls, but 12? Now that would definitely be too many. :)

Mandy said...

Your post made me laugh! HA! I love the card and love that you called it "Pearliscious"!!

Christi (Cici510 on SCS) said...

I LOVE this card!! And you can never have too many pearls! :)

Danni said...

What a wonderful card! Love the pearls.
On my clickabella I masked her feet and stamped an oval for her to be on.

Debby said...

Oh my gosh you crack me up! I'm laughing out loud at my comptuter and my daughter is like huh! Attached to the table by her thighs. OMG! I sure feel like that sometimes. Trying to get my keyboard drawer out over my thighs. Goodness. Instead of drawing a floor to ground her, draw a chair! I love the whole card btw and I never watch that show you are talking about so can't relate much there but your little story cracked me up. Thanks my friend! It's been a long day and you gave me my first laugh of the evening! :-)

I never really paid attention before, but that will now totally bother me too when it comes to this stamp! But I LOVE this card. It came out fantastic regardless of the missing chair!

Chrissy D said...

Love these pearls!!! This is soooo pretty! TFS! I sit in the air all of the time, don't you!? LOL This is a CUTE stamp! I love it anyways!

Sarah Elliott said...

I love it...two scoops is one of my favorite basic greys. Awesome card.

scrappinmominky said...

Meredith said...

ok so I have had this stamp for a while now (I know big surprise *wink*) and never once have I ever noticed that she doesn't have a chair!!!!!!! And it's actually a stamp that I've used *gasp* Thanks a lot for pointing this out....now I will be just as disturbed by it as you are :)

Even with the invisible chair, it's a great card!!!! Oh and you can never have too much bling...ever!

Meli Mitchell said...

"neenagasia"...ha ha ha. SO TRUE. I just got done watching it. I have been waiting for Stella to go on about her "leatha" some more. That chick cracks me up.

ANYWAY :o)
Love this card. The colors are so earthy and really speak to me. The pearls, well, they are superb. Loves, loves, loves.

You "made it work"! Lol.

Cheribella said...

Love this card even though you have now weirded me about her not having a chair, I don't know if I will ever be able to work on this image again until I figure out how to include a chair, LOL. Pearls, 10 pearls look good to me, so would 15 or 20, women should always be surrounded by pearls they are the one accent piece that never goes out of style and you can where it anywhere,

Candy said...

LOL LOL I am laughing out loud!!! I do not have this bella stamp and I now don't think I can buy this stamp - no chair!!!!!! hilarious - but I would have to draw one in or it would bug me forevah . . .
Your card is beautilicious - and you can never have too many pearls. Thanks for the laugh ........

Susan said...

She's great! I just adore pearls and the background paper rocks! Love, love her!

Rach said...

You are so funny!!!!
i don't think that i would have noticed the missing chair if you hadn't mentioned it....but now you do....how very strange!!!!!....love the comment about her being glued to the desk by her upper thighs...lol....too funny...hehe....
Your card does look wonderful none the less..chair or no chair.....your pearls are perfect!
thanks for starting my day on a good note...lol.
Hugs Rachxx

Holly said...

Cute card Sarah and I am a total Project Runway fan, it's funnylicious! LOL!
I love the pearls you did around the corner. Just imagine the desk has a built in little sling or something she's sitting in...at least she's got a nose and mouth unlike some images! LOL! But where is her power cord? That's no laptop she's got!

Carol B said...

I have used this Bella image before and have never, ever noticed she wasn't in a chair! That is too funny! Now it's going to bug me too! And why didn't I ever notice that? That's very disturbing... I think PR should put Blayne and Suede in a room together and see who can be the most annoying! But seriously, this card is FIERCE! Love it!

Sara (ChicagoGirl) said...

Okay, this is how I justified it. I *think* the desk only has 2 legs and the leg just off of center is for the stool she is sitting on. Hey, it justifies it to me. ;)

Kristine said...

=) You are so funny! When I looked at it, I thought that the shorter "leg" on the right was for her 1-legged chair...if that makes you feel any better! There's 2 for the table and one for the chair. YA...that's it. And, btw...I Love project runway too!!

Lorraine said...

you are just too funny! OMG! I love project runway!
That would bother me about the missing chair too. Your coloring and embellishments are perfect. very cute card. thanks for sharing!
by the way, I have loved your whipper snapper images so much that I placed a large order.

Courtney said...

Oh my. First let me say this is a great card! Second, now that you mention it, I'll never be able to look at this bella the same again!
