Vintage Chair Tent Topper


When I was making these cards I did find myself amused by the name of this style of card. I expect to see a more rustic card with the tent name but I guess I understand the evolution of the name.
When I went looking for images to use I found this Lockhart chair. I love this image, I have white chairs like this in my front yard under the tree. It's been so hot this summer that we haven't had much chance to use them but I like the friendliness of having them out there.
This is one of the images stamped on vellum and colored on the back side. I cut it out with Nesties and when I went to put the card together I somehow made a smudge on the upper left corner. Flower to the rescue. Isn't it lucky that we can always find and embellishment to hide our goofs???
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Tent Topper is a style of card? I still don't get it, but I do love the chair and the flower to cover a goof. The goofs I hate the most are the ones that got there because the acrylic block I used for stamping is too shallow and ink got on my fingers when I inked the stamp. My fingers are raw from ink remover, so I'm swearing off of polymer stamps and going back to wood blocks. The hype on the poly far exceeds their usefulness.

End of rant!

Thanks for commenting on my card. :-)
