I really like the image of the guy asleep in his armchair, and it reminded me a bit of my grandfather after he'd retired. He'd always tell us that he wasn't asleep at all, "just resting my eyes!" he'd say. He is very much missed.
I stamped the image onto white card, marked the die position and then cut out the feet, so that they would hang off the edge of the square. I stamped the image again onto striped paper for the chair, blue paper for the trousers and white card for the man's body and also the newspaper, and fussy cut the layers. I used Copics to colour the man and add a touch of colour to the paper. I added shading around the image and then layered it onto a backing square. I stamped a few sentiments randomly over the background. On the inside I cut a mat layer to match the armchair and on the white panel I stamped a bit of the man asleep and a simple sentiment.
I'm submitting this to this week's Less is More challenge - LIM#159 where the theme is masculine cards. I'm not sure whether there is enough white space for Chrissie and Jen, but it is quite clean and simple! I'm off to watch the Olympics - it's the Ladies short programme in the ice skating - should be very interesting too! Bye for now.
