Hello lovelies, it´s again time for another Stencil Sunday project post! It is a weekly feature brought to you by the STAMPlorations girls in the Mixed Media design team. Every Sunday, there is a post up over at the STAMPlorations blog, where team members share their mixed media projects showcasing ARTplorations stencils and STAMPlorations stamps. You willl find more information about this Sunday´s projects by visiting the STAMPlorations blog (do also check the teamies links to their blogs for deeper information on each project)!
Here is my project:
Step 1: I had a really nice sized clothes tag on my son´s sweater which I wanted to alter to a present tag. I first covered the logo with a piece of old book paper. Then I took the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set and stamped some flying birds onto the background with a black ink.
Step 2: Next I placed the Bubbles Mini stencil over the tag and applied transparent texture paste thru it onto the tag. I let the layer dry overnight.
Step 4: After that I added a punched yellow flower and a yellow button to the tag with a strong paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment (Trendy Birds 2 set) onto a piece of book paper, fussy cut it and glued it onto the tag. Finally I added a piece of lace which I colored with green Distress Ink. In the end I also added some white texture spray splatters on top of the tag for additional interest. This is how the finished present tag looks like. It will add a nice, personalized detail to a future present :). In fact I might add it to my wedding anniversary present for my husband this weekend :). And the July Mixed Media Challenge runs until the end of the month! If you want to play, you still have a little time left to get messy and share your non-card mixed media projects. It’s anything mixed media except a card…and you must use a stencil (any brand or even a homemade one!) in your project(s). For the complete challenge info + prizes, click here.
