Need a Perk Me Up?
There's a challenge on eclectic Paperie to use papers from the kitchen to create a collage. I used a pretty tea time paper napkin that I bought at an Asian dollar store in HI. I bonded it to heavy cardstock by making a sandwich with Glad Wrap and ironing to melt the Glad Wrap and bond the napkin to the cardstock (called Felted Cardstock technique). The Inkinkado stamp was a recent gift from my BFF, Debbie Moon. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and added some glitter to the steam coming from the cup. The napkin print had some pretty metallic gold accents; so to echo this effect I edged the layers with a gold Krylon pen. I fussy cut one of the cup & saucers, created an outlined edge with red cardstock and popped the cup up on dimensionals. Other kitchen references include a piece of netting from an up-cycled onion bag and some baker's twine. The napkin layer was added to a layer of red glitter paper from DCWV.
