Still Crazy about U

A little announcement before I begin....I am one of two new DT members at Top Tip Tuesday! WooHoo!!! I was thrilled to receive an invitation to join the uber talented Design Team at TTT and today officially marks my debut. Thanks again to Carol and Samantha for the invite and the warm welcome by the team. I {heart} you all! Wanna know who the other new DT member is? Jennifer Scull of Just Coffee Please...& Stamps, & Ribbons, & Paper so please check her blog out, you'll be glad you did. On a sad note, Leanne {the founder of TTT} is leaving to pursue other interests and we wish her the very best. Carol & Samantha are the new co-owners and coordinators of TTT so we are all in good hands. :)

1 For the Men-Masculine
 is the theme for our current challenge at TOP TIP TUESDAY and this is my tag featuring my Top Tip-use dies as masks to create depth on your project. I loved making this tag with mix & match fave stamps for my husband. I placed three Spellbinders Sprightly Sprocket dies on my tag and sprayed Adirondack Color Wash-Espresso over everything. Carefully, I lifted the dies and wiped clean. The images that were left created depth to my background and I went over the areas with distress ink to add some *cream* to my tag. I played along with the One Stop Craft Challenge 189-Coffee & Cream where the colors are determined by your favorite flavor of coffee. Cappuccino, espresso, latte, or flavored joe-it's all good! I grew up with my dad drinking black coffee so the black ink is a nod to his fave. :) I'm also linking up with the Make It Monday # 96 linky party.

We certainly hope you can join us this time and show us your take on 1 For the Men-Masculine !

I am sooooooo excited you are on the TTT team!!!! I know I've already told you that your tag is magnificent, BUT now I've had another chance to drool even more over it. Tags are probably the hardest thing for me to make and I'm always so mesmerized by people who can detail them so much with layers and intricate embellishments and they still look so organized! I love your tag and your FIRST debut project for TTT. Congratulations to you my friend!!!
