Hello, creative lovelies! Time for another Stencil Sunday project!
Just some creative play here today that I'm sharing with you. And when I say that...it's true. I just started mucking about with a tag, some stencils, inks etc. You just never know what you're going to end up with during play time *grin*.
I inked up my craft sheet with three shades of Distress Inks and spritzed it with some Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist. Then I dragged my tag through it a few times until it was covered with color. Next, I heat set the tag and then I added some Distress Micro Glaze (it acts like a resist) through the ARTplorations Leaf Prints stencil. Then I started adding more of the same tones of Distress Inks over top.
Then, I used the Bubbles ARTplorations stencil and repeated the process. It gives sort of a funky Bokeh effect which makes me happy!. The edges were distressed with a distressing tool and some ink. And the final step was to stamp the tag with STAMPlorations BOLD SENTIMENTS: Create and add a bit of twine.
Would love to have you join us for the challenge this month. As always, it's an anything goes challenge that must be a mixed media piece...tags, art journal pages, home decor, etc....anything but a card. The winner will receive a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate or 2 ARTplorations stencils. And the top picks receive an ARTplorations stencil of their choice.
