Time for a Snooze

Hi there everybody.  I have made a couple of cards recently using this digital stamp from Di's Digis called Time for a Snooze.  They are both much the same in style but I used different colours for the layers and both were coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pencils and the blending solution which I find blends colours together really well and gives a nice smooth finish.  Here is the first one I made for a friend who has been chillaxing in the sun recently so I thought the image rather appropriate. 

The only additions on this one were the snippets of yellow and blue card for the background and a snippet of the same blue for the die cut sentiment, and also a couple of gold tone sticky numbers as it was his sixtieth birthday so I stuck them on the bottle as he is rather partial to a glass of wine.  Mind you I made a bit of a faux pas as I think he normally drinks more red wine than white but never mind.

This second card is for our nephew, and I decided to colour the bear in a slightly lighter colour and I also had a go at layering the die cut sentiment with the two colours used in the layering, which were snippets of card, with the darker colour behind to make a shadow.   It was rather fiddly to do but I quite like the effect.  

Thank you for taking a look today.
