All that glitters part 2

As promised, here are the postcards that I said I would photograph again & they still didn't turn out as well as I had hoped (they look SO much better in person). I have a feeling that the metallic threads don't play well with the camera flash. If you click on the photos, you can see a little bit better detail.

The top photo, I used hand dyed navy kona fabric, black misty fuse & a beautiful dark navy metallic eyelash yarn. (Maybe this eyelash color would show up better on a lighter colored back ground fabric?) The second & third photos are the same piece. The second photo you can see the background parfait color better & the third photo you can see the eyelash yarns better. I do apologize that I couldn't capture the colors better because I have to say, I think they turned out wonderful!! Maybe, I'll try them out on some lighter colored backgrounds & see what happens??
