Sitting here

At the Play Date Cafe Challenge, our colors are fudge, goldenrod and teal.  Here is the photo inspiration:


My mind went right to the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose paper pads that contain these colors: Hazel and Hattie.  I've had this Hero Arts clear stamp set for awhile, but this is the first I've inked it up.  High time, wouldn't you say?  These diminutive patterns are perfect for them!  My living room has 2 wing chairs just like this, only my table between is more of a chest with drawers.


supplies: teal card base, My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose "Hazel" and "Hattie" papers, wood "floor" from Crate Paper's "Emma's Shoppe Collection", Hero Arts CL480 Wish You Were Here, Anita's Teddy Bear ink
