Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast was to draw inspiration from
MacKenzie-Childs designs...very fun and playful!
I choose this armchair as my inspiration:
Red Harlequin Wingback Chair... Here's my rendition:
I began with some beautiful papers that my husband, Paul, bought me for Christmas. The beautiful, textured red background paper is Provo Craft Chili Pepper; the heart designer paper is Abby Simon designs. There was gold metallic touches on the heart paper, so I chose to use a gold mirrored cardstock in the layers as well. I don't remember where I bought this gold mirrored--it was in my "stash"- but Sharon (notimetostamp) has discovered Marco Paper, take a look at one of her designs using it here.
I used Stampin' Up's Kind Thoughts medallion, and stamped it with the Essential Glue Pad, then used gold fine glitter to create the image over the heart. The glitter did not stick very well to the very fine lines of the image-- but it leaves a subtle design over the heart. I did test it on a regular piece of cardstock before I took the plunge--it showed up and stuck much better than the red dp...? In any case, I'm sure that my hubby will like it (as he picked the papers out...hehe!)
This also fits Sharon's Friday challenge to use new items. She had commented yesterday as to what else was in my Christmas package from Paul...yes, Sharon, there is still more to come!!! LOL!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
