Hello lovelies!!! It´ again time for another Stencil Sunday post over at the STAMPlorations blog. This time I created a Christmas tag (again) – well, there are going to be a few presents that need to be decorated with tags, so I still need to make a few :). So this is my contribution to this Sunday´s stenci inspiration post. Here is what I did:
- Take a manila tag and the Leaf Bliss (L) STAMPlorations stencil and start outlining with a red pen (for the berries) and a green pen (for th leaves) along the stencil pattern. You can move the stencil around abit to get the end result you prefer.
- After you have outlined all the patterns you want, take a red and a green marker (I used COPIC pens) and color the patterns with the markers. Fast and easy!!
- Next take the STAMPlorations Fond Expressions clear stamp set and stamp with a black ink a sentiment to the tag. I think that the „just a little something for you“ works for a Christmas present as well as for another occation too, so I chose that for this particular tag.
- And finally, add soem white highlights (Signo uni-ball white) to the berries and draw an outlined with a black pen along the edges (faux stitching). Add a red ribbon and the tag is done. You can create your own coloring pages, colored backgrounds and colored details to all kinds of artwork pieces using this technique! And it´ very relaxing too (and very fast to do)!!
I hope you enjoyed this little step-by-step idea and get your stencils out for play. Now it´s your turn and when you are finished with your piece, do join in with us and submit your work to the STAMPlorations blog for THIS CHALLENGE!
