My project today was made using Cozy Chair ,  Small Grass BorderButterfly Set , Leaves and Stems and Tiny Flowers.

I started by stamping the image on watercolor paper using Gathered Twigs and Worn Lipstick ink.  I used my waterbrush to lightly pull the ink out of the stamped lines to fill in.  In addition I used reinker with the waterbrush to complete coloring the chair.   I sponged Tumbled Glass ink in the sky area using my ink blending tool and sponged in Peeled Paint on the ground area .   I attached the scene to the card base and layered a triple mounted frame over it.

I attached a few flowers to the scene with glossy accents using the Tiny Flowers and Leaves and Stems.  I finished by adding the Small Grass Border a few butterflies from the Butterfly Set.

  6. I’m not one who likes sitting on Adirondack chairs since I have bad knees and getting out is too hard. However, your pink pillow makes me want to snuggle down in this one! And those pink flowers are calling to me to sit and smell their sweet scent. Love your card, Kittie.
