Chair

Man, as I'm typing my posts up in advance, I just keep thinking that I'm really bad about posting my cards on time. However, it does give me good blog fodder for those weeks when I'm out on business.

Ok, so this is another card using Furnishing Fun set from Schlosser Designs. Such a fun set! So many possibilities and so many things you can do!

So let's go over the fun things you can do with this card.

1. Try running a comb over the stamp once you've inked it up. It gives it a fun wooden look! Isn't that neat?

If you mess up it's ok. Just stamp it anyways. I like doing this image in 2 swipes.... once for the top of the chair and once for the feet.

2. I used the 2 different sized flowers for a neat background. I stamped the larger flower in brown and used white on the smaller image to tone it down a little.

What a great card Belinda! I love chair images and had never heard of this stamp company. When I checked them out I was amazed. I love that stamp set! I want it for the chair and the pear (both of which I collect!).
