Expresso Yourself is one of the March new reveals from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used the digi version (DIGI699) and created a tag.
After printing and coloring the image with Copic markers, the image was die cut using a Spellbinders die (Labels Four) and the edges distressed with Distress Ink (Tea Dye). Caramel embossing powder was added to the swirl on the coffee cup and Gypsy Red velvet glitter was sprinkled over SNS Dimensional Glue added to the steam.
The tag was created using Wendy Vecchi's Splattered Plaster Technique by combining Archival inks (Manganese Blue and Saffron) with rubbing alcohol and spritzing with Dylusions Ink Spray (White Linen). Once this dried I stamped images from the SNS Journal Mixed Media set. The coffee rings were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with more Caramel embossing powder. The other images were stamped with the Archival inks.
I created a ribbon flower and added twine for a finishing touch.
