Texture and Water Color Resist Coffee Tag Card


So many steps (and waiting) with this card, but it was fun!

The background was created with a technique I learned at Papertrey Ink
~watercolor resist with rubber cement.

I embossed the tag with a folder for~









 Hardest part?...waiting for the watercolor to dry!

Once it was ready, I peeled away the rubber cement to reveal vibant swirls.


I think diecutting AFTER embossing or watercoloring gives a crisper panel~just sayin' :).


Thanks for stopping by~
