Designer's Choice Challenge

Hello there!

I'm here a day late with my Designer's Choice Challenge card for The House that Stamps Built.

This week, we've been challenged by our fellow Rock Star, Deonna, to create a monochromatic card, using the colors brown, black, and white.


I stamped the Repeat Impressions 2628-H Comfy Chair, on brown cardstock, with black ink, and fussy cut it.  A focal panel was cut to 3.75" x 5".  A piece of patterned paper was added to the top, for a 'wallpaper' effect.  I drew in some hardwood floor, and some wainscoating, with a pencil, and completed them with Copic markers.  A 1/4" stip of white cardstock formed the 'chair rail', and the sentiment, Repeat Impressions 410-H Simple Pleasures, was stamped at the bottom edge.  The chair was popped up with dimensional foam.  It's perfect, the way the room lighing behind the camera created the shadow behind the chair! The panel was matted with brown cardstock, and adhered to the card base.

Hope you like this quick and easy creation!

Be sure to check out my fellow Rock Stars' creations this week!
