Please Stay

I love this image by Queen's Dresser Drawers.  It is entitled "Empty Chair."  I chose to use it for the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the theme is " Color."  We are to create a project using our own chosen medium to Add color.  I began with white card stock.  ( I recently gave away nearly every piece of background paper that I owned in order to move to customized backgrounds.)  Though not as brilliant as perhaps some of the other entries for this challenge, I am always amazed that a few smooshes of Rusty Hinge and Bundled Sage Distress Paint and Peeled Paint Distress Ink and some sprinkles of water can create such a lovely, soft, colorful backdrop.  The chair image was also stamped with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint for a pop of color.  The word "stay" was created with the Secretary Pool Plate by Artistic Outpost.  Tissue tape and some paper string by Idea-ology and some vintage buttons complete my card. Thanks so much for dropping by.  Yvonne

What an absolutely lovely card, Yvonne! The color palette says "timely," and that empty chair says WELCOME, SIT A SPELL! You are simple engaging me with these cards!

I do think it's brilliant...color, design, and sentiment choice! The word "Stay" intrigued me. How many times have I wanted to put that on a card for someone leaving or someone who has past away, or for something I wanted to keep but lost somehow. I don't know if this was the purpose of your card, but it has caused me great thought and inspiration! I love the bold color of the chair as well...again symbolic in my mind. Well done Yvonne! A real beauty! Thank you for sharing your true colors with us this week here at Simon Says Stamp & Show!

Lovely natural colors. Like the idea of cleansing out the papers to focus on creating your own background. Lovely serene card. Glad you joined us at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
