I’m pretty sure I posted WAAAAY back in January that I had joined a monthly project swap at SCS I joined two groups, Techniques and Anything But A Card.
Sonja sent us a terrific January technique kit, using Brushos. And, Sue sent us a terrific ABAC kit using etching, which I was super stoked to try out.
Unfortunately….it didn’t work for me. I have no idea why!! Sue warned us it might be light, but there is NO evidence of any etching having occurred….and I did it twice!
Plus, the etching shape I initially chose I only had one of, and I started my matching tag. So, when it didn’t work, I was faced with altering my tag design or…..having it mismatched. I decided to go ahead and re-etch and THEN figure out the tag, just in case.
The etching didn’t work a second time, so I went back to my original theme, coffee! I used an extra background from Sonja’s brushos kit to cut the circle for the tag, then I embossed some coffee beans from the Coffee Cup stamp from Prickley Pear.
In the list of other things that didn’t go right this time, I wanted to fill my jar with coffee beans. But, I thought I had a bag of unused beans in the cupboard and when I went to dig it out, it was grounds….not as impressive, in my opinion, but it will do for the photo!
Thanks Sue, for the great idea! I can’t believe that jar shipped so well!
