CAS Coffee Tag



I wasn't going to share this tag because I don't know... it wasn't "perfect"... or maybe I thought it needed something else?  A sentiment?  A little black/grey on the bottom?  Anyhoo... my friend ~amy~ wants to get to 300 entries for her amazing Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm going to share the tag I'm not in love with to help her.  I was inspired by the amazing Jill Foster's tag over at Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  I haven't used this Hero Arts coffee cup stamp in ages...  I like the idea of coloring around the image and I added some perfect pearls to the cup and some splatters to give it a bit more of an artistic flair.  But, the short answer is that one layer projects are HARD and Jill is so amazing....  so ~amy~, this one is for you.  Perhaps it'll get a make over when I have time?

I like it! I think a little black sentiment along the side might be all it needs to put it over the top- you're right. I like the watercolored effect like the inspiration piece.

Sometimes the projects that aren't "perfect" wind up being somebody else's favorites. I think this is super cute and thanks for helping to try to hit 300. We were close!

You go girl! No kidding Jill is amazing. I played with Ellen's 12 tags one year. Haven't even checked out one day yet this year. Yikes. You rock coffee, ya know. Can you rock wine, too? Wanna hop with me next year?

I think you are being a little too critical. I love how warm this tag looks. Great job.
