Challenges, challenges, always great for stoking the creative fires!This is the inspirational image this week, over at Inspired By Challenge. I love the eclectic collection of objects, but was especially taken by the differently coloured chairs, and the striped rug.
The challenge at this week's Color My Heart Color Dare is to use secondary colours: green, orange & purple--pick two or use all three.
I used this Close-to-My-Heart stamp set, "Chairs to You" (D1456--I think its retired, but you may be able to find it through your CTMH consultant), which had the perfect kitchen chair image:
Pear, Goldrush and Creme Brulee, then coloured in the images with coordinating coloured pencils, and a water-based blending pen. I used a Copic marker (W1) to add shadow on the "floor."
|Love the dimension you can create with just a little shading!|
I used glued some assorted ribbons across a piece of Olive card-stock to mimic the carpet. I thought of adding a greeting like: "Friends Always Welcome," or "Pull up a Chair," but decided to leave it alone.
I am submitting this card to Inspired By Challenges #31, and Color My Heart Color Dare #7.
Thanks for stopping by!
