Just sitting here thinking about you



The challenge at Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday this week was to stamp and image and not color it. Well, since I have gotten so hooked on copics, I was afraid this one was going to stump me. Luckily, it didn't - I was just really inspired to try some other techniques that seemed to work great for this card. I paper pieced my chair using SEI's velvet paper, which gave a nice upholstery look, and sewed beads on by hand for the tufting. I embossed the flower vase and used Flower Soft for my flowers. The chandelier was cut from my Cricut Home Decor cart, and I outlined it with a Sakura clear pen, and added orange stickles for the candle light. I used the sketch from Priscilla's Midnight Madness site for my layout.

What a unique card. :) It's amazing how challenges really "challenge" you to try new things! I love all the fun things you did with this card. Thanks so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness this week. :)
