Just sitting here - CR84FN color challenge

Monday, May 30, 2011
Yes - a second blog post today!  In between some weeding in my flower beds, the last of the laundry and shopping with a friend -- oh don't forget lunch at an old fashioned drive-up restaurant called Jay's -- I managed to find the time to make another card :o)   I love, love, love this stamp set!  I borrowed it from one of my stamping friends (thanks Cheryl!).  Yes...I did some fussy cutting/paper piecing again.  I think I'm hooked!
This card is going in a challenge that is new to me.  I just loved the colors for this week's challenge.

Take a look.
CR84FN30 Color Challenge
How can you not be inspired by these photos?

This is my interpretation:

I used my Scor-Pal to create my "floor" on the kraft card stock.  Then, I sponged it with a little crumb cake ink (crumb cake is SU's version of kraft.)  The chair, the table and the lamp shade were stamped and cut out, then attached with foam dots.  I used versamark with a feather stamp to create my wall paper (of sorts!)  Then, there had to be some bling :)

Thanks for stopping in!  I hope you'll leave a comment...I love reading them.

Card stock: kraft, bashful blue, whisper white (SU)
Ink: crumb cake, basic black, early espresso (SU)
DSP: bella birds (SU)
Stamps: wish you were here (Hero Arts), feather points (Stampendous)
