Mixed Media Tag Smile and Coffee

newchallenge sssm

Hello, crafty friends! Hope you all had an awesome weekend! Let's welcome spring with this new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, and create something with FOOD and/or DRINK.

I've done some spring cleaning in my work room, and found some wonderful embellishments in the stash that I can use on this project. I created a mixed media tag with these elements.

I was inspired by this Tim Holtz cup stamp since it's always great to have a cup of coffee or tea when you are creating. The background of this tag was colored with Koi watercolors and ColorBox inkpads. I adhered a flower die cut with burlap that colored with Distress inks on the tag after the background was colored.

I stamped the cup image with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp and attached it on the tag with Tombow Adhesive. The SMILE sentiment was die cut using Tim Holtz Friendship die.

Some embellishments were layered and adhered on the tag to decorate and create more interest. I hope you like my project and are inspired to make something with FOOD and/or DRINK.
