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.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. What a cute card Paulette! I love how you bonded the napkin to the cardstock, I've never seen that technique. The gold accents and onion bag are perfect! Thanks so much for joining in the challenge at eclectic Paperie!

  2. I have never heard of that felted cardstock technique, How cool is that? Beautiful stamp...that Deb Moon has great taste (in friends, too!) Love the use of the pretty napkin, the netting, and the baker's twine. Cute details on this one,as usual, Paulette. Glad you joined us at eP again.

  3. oh wow, what a great tip about ironing the glad wrap. Will definitely give that a try. Awesome card and I love how that onion bag looks. Perfect. Thanks so much for playing along with the eTeam in our eP Picks Challenge.

  4. Ain't it the truth - wonderful card with a great sentiment!
