QKR Monday - Couch Potato

I posted last week that I was working on my QKR Monday project. Well, after many trials, tribulations and frustrations, I finally came up with a card that I "liked" enough to post. My biggest challenge with this card was the look I wanted to achieve and the scale of the card versus the scale of the stamp.

This card was created using the Couch Potato and  Early Retirement stamps by QKR Stampede. This was my first attempt at creating the look of a "room" using the Faux Painted Paneling technique in the October/November 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. The Couch Potato image was stamped three times -- once on patterned paper (the couch), a second time on kraft card stock (the potato, which was subsequently colored with Prisma watercolor pencils to enhance the color) and a third time on white card stock for the pillow, tennis shoes, and glove. Here is a close-up of the Couch Potato:

Today is also my day to post on the QKR Stampede Blog. Be sure to go there, as well, to see another project using the Relaxing Gnome stamp. Here is a little peek:

Thanks for stopping by and having a look! Have a WONDERFUL day!!
