The Free for All Challenge a couple of weeks back was to create a card inspired by one of your collections (not including your stamping supplies). I don’t really collect many things, but I LOVE to read and to watch movies. I figured…that leads to a comfy a chair and I picked Our Craft’s Live, Laugh, Lounge stamp set to create the card. That way I could make the card also work for the OCL sketch of that week.

The chair was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. It was cut out with Label 13 Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers (R29, R59, E50, E51). With the die still on the cardstock, the image was air brushedwith Copic Marker E50. The layer was then adhered to a slightly bigger black layer. Next I stamped the chair again on a piece of October Afternoon Thrift Store paper. The pillow was cut out, sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and adhered over the main image. A black Kaisercraft Rhinestone finishes off the main image.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Wild Cherry cardstock (My Favorite Things) folded in half. A  1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of October Afternoon The Thrift store paper was adhered over a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack. The paper was sanded and then stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. It was stamped on Ivory cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker YG41. To finish off the card a red Gingham ribbon bow was attached the left of the image and more black Rhinestones were added to the top right and bottom left.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
