As it turns out Moxie Fab World is hosting a chair challenge at the moment called "Three Cheers for Chairs" - to use chairs in a creative way.
Well, I think Lisa did the thinking for me - but here is my take :0)
I tried to keep the card fairly simple and masculine - our friend is a real manly guy. I used a scor-bug on the background, embossed the white writing and used a row of buttons threaded with jute as the only decoration.
I wanted the sofa to look a little shabby - so made hatch marks on it. It's also not meant to look as inviting and comfy as a sofa can be. In fact - it's downright BORING! It is popped up on 3D dots to help highlight it - but only outlined in a grey Copic, to give it some shape. All this so it contrasts with the sofa and message......
Materials: Cardstock, Stamps, Ink, Twine - Papertrey Ink; Deckle and Rectangle Dies - Spellbinders; Alphabet Dies - Provo Craft; Scor-Tool and Scor-Bug; Versamark; Embossing Powder - Stampendous; Pearls - Kaiser; Corner Rounder and 3D Dots - EK Success; Copic Marker
.....on the inside. Which was the funkiest image of the sofa included in the set :0) The decorative pillow has also been stamped with a woodgrain pattern that gives it a bit of a corduroy feel to it!
I'm hoping that he'll catch the play on words - we all think about a couch day as a day of relaxing. We're hoping he'll do that - but also 'make like a couch' and 're-cover' too :0)
Thanks for stopping in! (And thanks to Ted Mattos for all of his advice in the PTI forum and his blog about what men do and don't like on their cards So far on his blog he has Part 1 and Part 2 :0)
Hope you have some lovely weekend plans on the go - and a Very Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow, to all you Mums out there!
