Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Distress Ink Tag

tag 1

I decided to recreate Tim Holtz's July tag again in an entirely new way.  In my first tag, HERE, I decided to swap the plaid and tissue, but couldn't resist doing a tag Tim's way with the tissue on the outside this time, very much inspired by last year's June tag.  I printed an image of the cup onto cardstock, which I cut into a tag.  Next I used Tim's wrinkle free distress technique to get some color down.  Then came the tissue wrap and carefully cutting the coffee cup.

tag 2

I added some sponging around all of the edges to further define the shapes and some stitching as well.

tag 3

I love the gorgeous wrinkles in the tissue, and of course the rock star plaid!  I used Tim's floral punch to create the flower and his leafy dies for accents.  The coffee die is a Verve score.  :)  Thanks Julee!

tag 4

I have been working hard on my coffee projects, so join me all week for more coffee themed mixed media projects.  <3

I also wanted to remind you to submit your projects from my Shadow Box Canvas Tutorial to be featured here on the blog.  You won't believe the variety of takes the girls have come up with!  Here are some of their work:

Cindy-Adams

Cindy Adams created this nature beauty.  Love her 3D nest, eggs, moss, feathers, and that bee!  What a great composition with so much interest.  Well done Cindy and thanks for sharing your take with us!

Nancy-Bridges

Nancy created this fabulous springtime wonder.  Love her bright colors and the hand stamped scripture.  My heart is breaking that Nancy is leaving SC!!!  Love you girl!

I'm sharing a cup of joy with:
