The Fancy Chair
The set of chairs dueled day after day, facing each other, mostly not ever moving. Each had seats that were covered with pristine white wool supported by shiny mahogany wood. It appeared, to the tiny little girl peaking through the french glass doors, that the chairs would only move when they taunted her to get the other dirty and thus becoming the victor.
Moxie Fab World's Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week: Bold and Bright Challenge was a perfect opportunity for me to try out an idea that has been running around in my head for ages with the chair pictured above, as the colors were a perfect backdrop for black and white. Before adhering the rubon to the patterned paper, I highlighted with white pen only certain areas, therefore reducing the need to fussy cut. Worked like a charm! The card is is finished with strips of solid pink paper as well as the innards of security envelops and a pink rhinestone by the sentiment to balance it out (a tip picked up ala Kelley).
