Olympic Couch Spud

The current challenge at Art Impressions Stamps is to make your own background. I decided to create a plaid background upon which to place Art Impression’s funny character named (appropriately) “Spud”. I then paper pieced his recliner with the same plaid background. (Reminds me of the much loved and very ratty recliner in the sitcom “Frazier”.)
Printed off the sentiment for the front and inside of the card. Kinda like the results and entered into several other challenges.

The next card makes my mouth water! Printed Beccy’s Place free digi image “Strawberry Basket” onto Kraft brown cardstock, adding shading with tan maker and highlights with white colored pencil. Then cut the little blooms from another of Beccy’s free strawberry digi’s to add a bit of color contrast. Don't they look yummy?

  3. Two more wonderful cards to add to your stash Kathy, great job!
    You did an awesome job creating the background for the first card, and I love how you've used it for the chair too. I agree that it looks just like Marty's chair from Frasier... except for the duct tape!
    You did a wonderful job with the strawberry basket on your second card, I particularly like the addition of the little flowers to add a contrast. You've coloured the berries perfectly, they look ripe and juicy.
    Great job Kathy!
    Cheers,
    Beccy

    1. Oh... I forgot about the duct tape on Marty's chair. That would be a fun addition. Will do that on my next card!
