I'm just resting my eyes

Hello everyone! Practicing my Copic coloring on this fun image!  If your wondering why I named my post "I'm just resting my eyes" that is what my DH says every time I catch him snoring in his recliner. Which is why I bought this fun image!!! He's gonna get a kick out of this card!

The stamp is from Art Impressions, stamped in Versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As many of you know, I dislike Memento ink due it not giving a sharp black image! But that is my personal opinion and I found a way around it. I did end up fussy cutting this one out because I had this idea.....this would look good sitting on a rug!!

The "rug" is made out of kraft cardstock, cut out using an oval die and then embossing it with the lattice embossing folder. I then distressed it using vintage photo distress ink and finally taking a pair of stork embroidery scissors and giving it a bit of fringe. What do you think? Does it look like a rug? I'm still a little unsure.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, yes, Laurie, it totally looks like a rug, you clever girl, and it looks perfect under the chair! The remark about "resting my eyes" must be something that males are born with because my husband says that, too!! I MUST get that image, TFS!! Hugs, Darnell
