A spot of napping

It’s time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge brought to you by Sharon this week.For details on how to play along and join the fun please visit the challenge site.You don’t need a Willow Designs image to take part but of course we’d love it if you did!Don’t forget to check out the DT’s fabulous work too.

Here is her wonderful sketch :

There is also a recipe to follow :

1.Something blue
2.Something dimensional
3.Something patterened

Here I’ve used Taking a snoooooze digital stamp from Willow Designs.All colouring has been done with ProMarkers and I’ve added a touch of Glossy Accents to his glasses.I’ve gone all frugal and just used the one sheet of patterned paper and coordinated it with some leftover scraps of card.In fact I ended up making a little 5 x 5 card to accommodate them!My something blue is the bow made from some string cut from a price tag.The dimension comes from the paper bow and the way parts of the card are raised using foam pads.You could even count the Glossy Accents too. 

Here are some closer views :
