coffee tag



Coffee tag...  so this week's PTI Make it Monday is to use baby wipes to create your own ink pad with ink refills and I only have one color (how is that possible?).  (And yes, I was thrown off by the delay in the posting of the challenge, so please forgive me for being tardy, I missed my crafting window).  So I tried the technique and added some distress stains to the baby wipe and got this lovely coffee cup, it has a nice gradient feel.  After stamping the coffee cup one, I did it again with the outline stamp and then fussy cut it out (b/c I spent a good 10 minutes looking for the die and couldn't find it).  I had this colorful chevron background floating around from my stash raid for Virginia's View challenge and thought it would work well with the tie-dye feel from the challenge.  To finish off the tag I used the PTI newspaper print and PTI Latte Love coffee stamp and added 3 different types of May Arts ribbon.  Hope everyone had a lovely day... I'm still wondering when I'm going to finish my to do list (considering I made this project 16 hours ago and I'm just now posting it at the end of my day).  Tomorrow, that's the answer....

Such a cool (or hot :) coffee tag, Erin. I like the pretty effect you created on the cup. The chevron panel looks fab on the newsprint too.
