Morning Coffee

While waiting for a friend to arrive
I decided to go into my craft room
for some cleaning up........
but then I noticed an unfinished tag 
and some stamps and just could not resist myself!

So after an hour or say playing instead of cleaning,
this is the finished tag!

I had that tag lying on my table distressed with coffee
stains. So with Tim's star stencil and some red distress ink
I added some sparks to the background.

On the top of the tag I made this embellishment from shrink plastic.
It is a stamp from my stash, stamped with black ink on the shrink plastic
and cut out with a circle die. Made the hole before shrinking!

The sentiment is a stamp from the Club Scrap Mocha Java um stamps.
Stamped on white paper,distressed with tie die ink and cut.
Glued to the background and with a black marker added 
the boxes around the words.

The bird is from the wonderful stamp set
Crazy Birds by Tim Holtz.
I stamped it twice. First on the tag to have the 
little feet there and then on white paper
for coloring. I also used the Dot Fade stencel by Tim
on the bird to give it a little extra.
I colored the bird with distress markers,not direct to the paper,
but used the marker on my craft sheed, added a few drops
of water and used a pencil to color.
After cutting out the burd, I placed it with foam  tape
on the stamped bird on the tag.

The tree branch is a sizzix die from Tim and the leaves
are a small hand punch.

This coffee die is an old QuicKutz die called
coffee and tie and you can use it with the big shot too!
I decorated the cup with some Club Scrap stamps.

Now I want to enter this tag for these challenges:
