Flourishes New Release: Chairs for You

Here is the final of the three stamp sets being released by Flourishes tonight. This set is called "Chairs for You." Gorgeous. Chairs are so trendy right now and you will love all the different chairs, accessories, and sentiments.

When I saw this chair, it told me it needed to be paper pieced! :) When the new Basic Grey Bitterweet paper pack arrived at my door, it was meant to be! I colored the wooden parts of the chair with Copics. (E53, E55, E57) A shadow was added with W3.
The pearls are taking the place of this gorgeous line of nailheads on the stamp. I was thinking that some Liquid Pearls would be better, though.
The button and the bow are my favorite new idea that actually worked! I have wanted to make those ends behind a button for some time now. This larger button had big enough holes to accomplish that. Yay!
My other favorite part is the top corners. I wasn't sure what to do, so DH suggested some pewter pearls, "but make them look like a photo corner." Isn't he the best? I just love him!
