Please Be Seated with Angles

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 435 - Angled Background and today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 226 - Pinterest Inspiration
I stamped my focal image in basic black on vanilla then colored with copics. The sofa is actually NOT the same color as that 1st pillow. I colored the pillows to match the colors of the chairs in the inspiration photo.
I made this for my dh who has been faced with some difficulties in life and soared well above the challenges with flying colors. I am so proud of him. I hope he likes it.
RECIPE:Stamps: Please Be Seated - SU

Popped up Sending Love and Sympathy

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 430 - Deightlful Olive Pears with a dessert option of flowers.
I used a Stampin Up set called Love & Sympathy, I used SU Markers to ink the stems in old olive and pear pizzazz then the flower in daffodil delight, huffed and stamped on white. I stamped the "sending" portion of the sentiment in daffodil delight on the white panel then the remainder of the sentiment on white and cut into an oval shape then popped it up on dimensionals for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 433 - Pop Up Part of the Sentiment. I embossed the focal panel with Sizzix Square Lattice EF and matted this on Pear Pizzazz cs.
Hope you like it and now I am off to work.
