Texture and Water Color Resist Coffee Tag Card

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

stamps: Tim Holtz Coffee Time  dies: Tim Holtz Coffee Time,Simon Says Stamp Stitched Dress Up Tags, Avery Elle Double Perced Rectangles  other: Elmer's Rubber Cement,Tim Holtz Coffee Time Embossing Folder,Royal Langnickel Watercolor Paints,Copics,ribbon,stapler

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~
