A Coffee Tag

Here is my next tag for The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas challenge which is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. As you can see from my last post, I am in serious catch-up mode! This is my tag for Week 9, inspired by Linda's lovely coffee tag.

I started off by making my tag from Kraft card. I added die-cut letters and covered it all in gesso. I then sponged on stripes of Distress Stains - Festive Berries, Cracked Pistachio and Crushed Olive, which I spattered with water. The coffee cup, cut with a MFT die, is made from all kinds of left-over snippets and I used a piece of sandpaper to distress the chevron embossing. Finally, I coloured in the lettering with a metallic marker and rubbed Gelatos across - a mixture of Iced Chai and Iced Coffee.

This is also my second entry of the week for Pixie's Snippets Playground. My tag is seriously snippety and I reckon Di and Parsnip could do with a coffee!

Happy crafting! April x
