I chose to work with the rocker from the Gran’s Chair set. My concept changed from choice to implementation and so the card became a sympathy card. While coloring the basket I thought the empty chair lent itself well in that direction.
I colored the hat and the basket of flowers with my Prismacolor colored pencils. But I colored the chair with metallic gel pens. In real life the chair sparkles, just as memories of that special person that once sat in it would.
I trimmed the panel down and cut the bottom at an angle with a edge die. The sentiments are from the Stampabilities Card Phrases and the Power Poppy Daffodils stampsets. I stamped them in Versamark ink and embossed with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.
I adhered the panel to a card panel cut from patterned paper that I had in my stash and adhered that in turn to my cardbase.
