Afternoon Nap

Soooo, I have a spare few minutes before I have to make tea and thought I would share with you one of my weekend makes:

This is another little 5x5 card made using one of my new LOTV stamps, which I coloured using distress inks.  I thought I was getting the hang of colouring skin, but then I gave this poor little man sunburn on one of his legs.  Oh, well, that will teach him to fall asleep in the sun - at least he covered his head though.

Anyway, I love this image and always like to give it a vintagey feel, so I kept my colours as muted as I could with the options I had in my stash.

I added some faux stitching to the image panel with a brown fineliner.  I then layered this onto some paper from the LOTV country gent paper pad, to which I also added some faux stitching.  I backed this with some kraft card and then to finish, I stamped an LOTV tag in brown ink and added a bow made from some blue baker's twine.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
