A Cozy Chair...

You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants. -Stephen King

Tuesday again? WOW...Time is flying by! This week's
Jacksonebelle Tuesday Challenge is to use stitching...Faux or Real, your choice...Lindsey Loves Faux Sewing, so I went with that.
My picture doesn't show the stitching very well, but it is just around the image panel.

Lynda, you like that
image??? You Want one??? :D :D

When I paper Pieced the chair I cut out the whole chair, but then I cut it into it's seperate pieces and inked the edges to add shadow, then pieced it back together so the pattern was contiguous...

Stamps: Cozy Chair (Memory Box,) Birthday Centers (CHF)
Paper: Mocha CS (Memory Box,) Unknown PP
Ink: Copic Markers, Timber Brown StazOn
Misc: Antique Brass Brad, Twill Ribbon
