Was asked to make this card for a retirement of a colleague.  The main stamp is Oscar (in the recliner) with the other AI stamps being the bookshelf, mat, stool and washing basket.  The chair is from one of the SU sets but it had a pot plant sitting on it.  I coloured the back & seat area on the stamp with a black marker (leaving out the pot plant), stamped it on the patterned green paper and paper pieced it onto the chair.  The cat is from a Penny Black stamp set and the clock is a CM sticker.  The background papers are CM with the 'carpet' being a plain paper on which I used a speckled SU wheel to make it more realistic.

Inside the card I used SU sentiments.  All the stamped images on the front were stamped on watercolour paper, coloured in and cut out.

  1. This card is really amazing. Your idea to "build up" the card has made it a real eye catcher. I need lessons!!
