There's a 'Nap' for That

Hi there!!

Today i have a card on the Art Impressions Blog that is a card perfect for anyone who currently works or has worked in an office! I used Asleep on the Job for this card and over the years i have worked in several offices and there were plenty of days were i wanted to do just what this woman is doing!! Hehehe!! And i just love the sentiment!! Everyone can relate!!

I started my card by cutting a fancy rectangle from watercolor paper, then i stamped the image with black ink. I colored her up with distress markers and water. The colors i used were inspired by some bakers twine that i found on my desk and decided to use on my card.

Next i trimmed a kraft panel and added the stamped panel with foam tape. I wrapped the twine around the panel and tied it in a bow. From some scrap paper i cut some notched banners and used distress markers to color them. I didn;t not add water as i wanted the color to be bright and intense.

I added the banners to my panel, just under the twine bow. Then i stamped the sentiment to the right of the banners. Next i adhered the panel to a Kraft card base, this way the twine on the back of the panel is hidden between the panel and card.
