Sunday Postcard Art - Chairs



This is my take on this week's theme of chairs. My background is made using a favourite technique of gesso swiped over card and then direct to paper using distress inks. Over this are layers of stamping . The image was googled but I knew it was perfect for me as soon as I saw it, I love the wet Sunday afternoon Victorian parlour game feel it has.

I love this. At first I thought she was tied up but I think the rope is just to keep her skirt from hiding the fact that she is actually balancing on two chairs. Fantastic, funny, creative and different.
