Tag with coffee by Tim Holtz

There is a challenge at Simons Says Stamp (Coffee or tea?) and because we are huge coffee fans and because I haven't been gone to the holiday yet and because I couldn't resist this challenge... today I have made this tag for my hubby as a bookmark. This is why I didn't put any 3D elements on the tag.

For making this I cut out a tag, covered with book pages, gessoed and painted (just a little bit) with acrylic paint.

After I stamped Tim's stamp on it - both sides. On one side vertically, on the other side horizontally. Slightly sanded the edges.

I colored the stamped images with Ranger Distress markers.

I put a thin layer of medium and after I glued words (kind of affirmation to my hubby) from Tim's Big Chat stickers.

What I used:

Ranger Distress Markers

acrylic paint

book pages
