Espresso Yourself and Grunge Tag "V"
a couple more swaps finished and mailed this weekend...
OPI creativity ATC swap.. Espresso Your Style was the polish I chose for this one
and of my V grunge tag... as you can tell I went with Valentine's day or maybe Victorian/vintage- ended up not using the vintage picture on these .. too much I thought...but I forgot to take a pic of them once they were all finished. anyway ... they are postal now.
Coffee ATC - alcohol inks on glossy cardstock
stamped coffee cup with stazon on burlap
stamped coffee cup again on paper and used glossy accents on cup part.. cut that out and put it over stamped image on burlap. Popped printed image on dimensional foam...used text from OPI ad at the bottom... you can't really see it in this pic but there is a tiny gold spoon mixed with fibers and used mini safety pin to attach to burlap.
Tag- emobossed tag with cuttlebug folder or Tim Holtz folder and then used distress inks over that.. mixed Vintage Photo, worn lipstick, aged mahogany, spun sugar, victorian velvet ( each of the tags is slightly different)
Used old Smitten hearts from stash, Tim Holtz memo pins and adage tickets and strip of the tissue tape.
