For the selective coloring, I simply started with a black ink impression of the chair. After it dried, I selectively colored in 1 element of the chair-the cushion. It kinda gives it the look of a wrought iron chair this way. Then to enhance it even more, I stamped the heart and colored it in with a marker then cut it out and used foam adhesive to "pop" it off the back of the chair. This technique adds great dimension to the card.
On the bottom card, I used my markers to color in 2 of the chairs in brown and then the other in lavender. I hope you can see the shading and approve-I am working very hard to figure out that technique! Another technique on this card is to use a stamp or 2 to create my own background paper-in this instance, both the cardbase and mat are stamped. I kept it simple to keep the lavender chair as my focus.
