Perk Up - We Killed the Evildoer

Welcome to the Guild Hall. Pay no mind to the mess. We just returned from a rather urgent quest to quell the malicious plans of Professor Kendall, an evil alchemist who was developing a serum to reanimate corpses into flesh eating zombies. I shudder to imagine the catastrophic mayhem that would have caused. I managed to roll a +12 and snipe him using my Dusty Concord Crossbow, allowing the Lady Commander of Copics to swoop in wearing her +50 Boots of Leopard Speed and steal the serum whilst the Guardian of Glitter cast Sparkle Strike, creating cover for us to escape. After that exhausting endeavor, we decided to head back to the Guild Hall and recharge on some java.
I started this card by stamping The Greeting Farm’s “Latte Anya” which is was brand new - package hadn’t been opened, stamp untrimmed and uninked. I stamped her onto watercolour paper and coloured her using Distress Markers and my trusty Hydra Brush which I seem to be getting well acquainted with. I then used the polaroid stamp from my brand new Lawn Fawn set: “Say Cheese,” which my Lord Husband bestowed upon me this Christmas (much to my delight). The sentiment came from the Crafty Secrets “Coffee and Tea” set. I used that same set to stamp the coffee bean on some kraft paper to make it look patterned. I added some buttons to the side, which are probably my favourite embellishments to use (even if they do make a card have +83 puffiness). Lastly I used the Lawn Fawn “My Cup of Tea” set to subtly stamp the cups at the bottom.
The inside sentiment and beans are both from the “Coffee and Tea” Crafty Secrets set. I also did a little embossing on the sides with a border embossing folder and the Cuttlebug. Although the picture looks blurry, the font of the stamp is actually like that...weird...
I stamped more beans along the bottom of the envelope to make it all match and earned myself +62 combo exp points.
