Primarily Prozac

I've had this funny sentiment rubber stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps for over 3 years, and I'm glad I finally had reason to ink it up! I matched it with a "coffee" die from Your Next Stamp & two takes on with primary colors.

I stamped the sentiment in black on a piece of notebook paper; I masked the explanation point on the original stamp & used an ampersand stamp instead. I cut the "coffee" from a red vellum & twice from a regular vellum that I colored green or blue.

The coffee stains were inked using a Tim Holtz stencil, directly onto a paper towel that I backed with cardstock.

I made the embossed background while trying out the faux patina technique; I got this sorta 3D effect by inking by embossing folder & running it through my BigShot twice. I didn't throw away this piece because I knew I'd find the perfect use for it, and this was it!
