Time for Cocoa

I made this card for one of my work colleagues. I can't remember her name (hah, only joking). It's her birthday soon and I wanted to make a card that all the girls in the office could sign.

The letters have been done using a technigue I saw demonstrated at Alexandra Palace, where they stamp each letter with the same image as the main and then colour it and cover with glossy accents. I then used foam pads to decoupage them on the right. I stamped the image and coloured with (ruby, cinnamon, pastel blue and lime green) promarkers and then decoupaged the jacket, glove and cup. Added a ribbon and flowers to finish.

Did you like the technique on the letters? Can you remember watching it with me now, as I don't think you understood what I was talking about on the phone when I was trying to explain it?

Of course I didn't remember the technique - except in the vaguest way . . . I'm OLD you know . . . the little grey cells are getting fewer!

Well OLD friend, do you remember it now. Only the demonstrator was using the teddy bear stamp I bought?
