I loved this stamp the moment I saw it!! It's called Chairs and it's from Rubber Soul - and it's on sale!. I think the simplicity of the images are so beautiful - think of all the colors combinations and paper piecing opportunities there are here!! As you can hopefully see, I added some Crystal Effects to the seats to give them that "pleather" feel - you know that fun fake leathery material??? :)
I used the current CPS (#119) sketch and just turned it on it's side to fit my image. The dp is also from Rubber Soul, called Hoop-La. In case you haven't noticed, that particular shade of green is really one of my favorites!! And I probably never would have paired it up with the Summer Sunrise or Amethyst but it really works!
I made a quick little crocheted flower for one of the accents - it's probably only about 1" around or less so it really was quick! I didn't have the right shade for the center so I tried dying my white thread with a Copic markers . . . it worked! Now I wouldn't want to do it for a large project and it did make the cotten thread a bit stiff, but I was so tickled that it came out a perfect match! As you can see, I added a small brad to the center and backed it with the smallest size Blossom Nestabilities.
Thanks so much for stopping in today! I'm watching my nieces today so we'll have 7 children here - probably won't be stamping - lol!! :) Have a great weekend!
