Hello lovelies, it is again time for some more stencil inspiration over at the STAMPlorations blog!!!
Also don´t forget to play along with the December mixed media challenge!!! The tag I created this time is again a Christmas tag. I´ve actually used every single one I´ve created during the past weeks already on Christmas pressies. I think I might still need a few more :).
Here is how I created this tag:
I first placed the Bloom Factory stencil over a white tag, then took some Distress Inks (purple, green, blues) and started inking the tag thru the stencil. I started with the lightest colour on the top, then moved over to the darker ones towards the end of the tag. Finally I inked the edges with the purple ink. Since the ink underneath has different tones, the end result of the purple ink also varies from one part to another. This creates a really fun look!
Then I let the tag dry abit and mixed some white acrylic paint with water and dabbing a paint brush against another I created a white paint splatter layer on top. I let that layer dry properly before decorating the tag. I used the Fond Expressions 2 stamp and added a hand written word to the tag. The birdies have a glitter coat and the bauble is colored with the Distress Inks too and then decorated with some glitter glue.
Now hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to take a look at what my team colleagues created for today´s post!! Then I hope you get inspired and join in with us!!!
Have fun creating,
