OLW33 - home decor ...

...  Susan at Simplicity is hosting this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge - she wants us to use the theme "home decor".  And I realised that I don't have any home decor type stamps.  So I was a bit stuck for any idea (and busy with Christmas cards), so I'm rather late to the challenge, but I'm here!  Then earlier this evening, I remembered that I have some wonderful images from Pink Petticoat that feature lamps, chandeliers and a sweet little armchair.  My cards aren't strictly one layer as I had to print the images onto some card and then mount them onto a base card.  I have also added some bling!  Oh yes, I managed to come up with four cards!!!

The first is really clean and simple - a lovely little table lamp - and it's in shades of orange - nice and bright!

Promarkers: Mandarin, Amber
Inks: Distress - Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade
Spellbinder:  Beaded oval
Accessories:  Ribbon from stash

Next, is the sweet little armchair, which happens to have a cute scottie dog sitting in it.  The sentiment is "I miss your cuddles", so I decided to add some blue to this card and colour the heart cushions and flowers in shades of pink.  I'm quite pleased with this.

Promarkers: Cool Aqua, Pink Carnation, Maroon, Cinnamon, Terracotta
Inks: Distress - Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Spellbinder:  Squares

In the next card is this lovely image of a chandelier.  The words are so beautiful - I think it has a romantic feeling, so I added some red and some bling.  I also edged the card in the same colours and added a bold flourish using the Stampin' Up! flourish - Baroque.  Love this one.

Stamp:  Stampin' Up! - Baroque
Inks: Distress - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick
Spellbinder:  Mega oval

Finally, another chandelier with a really cheerful look - flowers on the shades and a lovely sentiment.  I decided that this should be light and bright - so it's yellow, with a contrast of blue!

Promarkers: Blue Pearl, Pastel Blue
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen, Mustard Seed
Spellbinder:  Labels 10
Accessories:  Peel offs from stash

I can't quite believe how quickly these came together - once I'd remembered that I had the images!!  It's nice to do some cards that aren't Christmas related.  That's all for now.

Goodness - impressive. I love the chandelier in yellow & blue, nice twist using the blue as I'd have gone to black but this is just much softer, Certainly shows hte value of colour theory.
