Pear in a Chair


A pair in a chair. Kind of like Sam I am and Green Eggs and Ham. Or one fish two fish red fish blue fish. I am partial to Thing One and Thing Two, since I'm an identical twin.
Ahh, gotta love a Dr. Suess reference...
I am absolutely delighted to have a Carbon Copied visit with the super talented Jennifer Rzasa. We are both featuring our version of the Card Positioning Systems sketch using the stamp set by Furnishing Fun from Schlosser Designs.


Jennifer's work blows me away every time I visit her blog. I love her use of bold designs and color. Her composition and execution is spot on in each and every project she posts. Congratulations to her as well for making the top 5 in the 2011 Gallery Idol Contest! Stop on over to her blog, Our Change of Art, if you haven't already, to check out her Carbon Copied project. You will be amazed, for sure.

The card's background has been impressed with woodgrain and then a panel-with one rounded corner, also featuring the pear in a chair, was adhered on top of that. Hand dyed silk ribbon was tucked under the panel to finish the sketch. Darn photographing at night, the card has a lot more depth in real life but I ran out of time to photograph during the day!

Cardstock: (Ivory) Georgia Pacific

Ink: (Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint Distress) Ranger
