Espresso my Gratitude Tag

Hi there,

we are having the Stamp Tramps November Blog Hop over at Skipping Stones Design and I used some crackle paste on my autumn tag:

  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper
  • stamp the coffee cup from the Skipping Stones Design Funny Coffee Vol. #1 set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • cover the cup with Masking Fluid from the Molotow Masking Pen
  • apply Dreamweaver Crackle embossing paste through the ARTplorations Foiled again Mini stencil
  • create a background with Distress Inks (Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge, Peeled Paint) and a watercolor brush
  • ink up the edges of the tag with Distress Ink (Peeled Paint)
  • add splatters with Izink (Topaz)
  • remove the Masking Fluid
  • stamp a leaf grom the Stampendous Trees and Leaves set onto the cup with Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • color the cup with Distress Markers and ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens
  • color a piece of seam binding with left-over inks
  • cut out a tiny tag and one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves from watercolor paper
  • stamp the sentiment from the Skipping Stones Design Funny Coffee Vol. #1 set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder 
  • color the tag with Distress Markers and ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens - the embossing will act as a resist
  • color the stitched leaf with Distress Markers
  • attach the leaf and the tag to a piece of May Arts Natural Twine and thread the twine and the seam binding through the hole of the tag

Here are close-ups of the cup and the leaf/tag embellishment:
