Priceless ..........

 
 
We have a monthly 'naked' postcard swap over on UK Stampers Forum each month and this months theme is an open theme, meaning that anything goes !
 
I wanted to use a wood mounted stamp (Funstamps - Coffee Girl) I had had for a while so I started by stamping this in Memento tuxedo black ink on plain white cardstock.  I trimmed the image out and coloured with Copic markers.  The base card was cut to 6 x 4 inches from stout cardstock.
 
 

 
 
 
 
I then used papers from a 6 x 6 stack (Alla-Prima) to produce the background and the two papers are joined in the centre by a die cut strip.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The chandelier is a rub-on and the words are from a set of polymer stamps stamped in Memento ink directly onto the background.


 
 
 
 
 
Final assembly was to add a strip of Washi tape from 7 Gypsies, add the image with strong glue and edge the card in ink.  Some Stickles glitter glue was added to some circles and flowers and the whole card was sealed with a couple of coats of cheap hair lacquer to protect it in the post.
 
I love the whimsical stamp too, but wonder whether coffee in bed delivered by her would be to my liking !!
