From the moment I saw this fabulous chair from Flourishes “Chairs for You” set, I knew I had to have it.  And with paper piecing being such a favorite technique of mine,  I couldn’t wait to pair it with these wonderful Mini Papers by Jenni Bowlin.

I colored, paper pieced, cut out and then mounted each chair onto the card with dimensionals.

I love this beautiful wide May Arts Crochet Ribbon, too.  How could I not!?!  lol

The sentiment is also from the “Chairs for You” set.  It has been divided between the front and inside of the card.

A little sparkle was added to each chair with my Stardust Glitter Pen.  Gotta have my sparkle fix!

Here are the Copics I used to color in the chairs. The final colors of the chairs vary depending simply on the order in which the color was applied and the amount of each color applied.

And because the chairs are cutout and designer paper covers areas not colored in, it was SO EASY to color because I didn’t have to worry about going outside of any of the lines!  Doesn’t get better than that!!

Happy Crafting!
