April Stencil Sunday and Mixed Media Challenge Tag


Hello!  I'm so happy to be back with another Stencil Sunday project and mixed media challenge.

Would love to have you join us for the mixed media 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. 



The background for my tag was made with acrylic paints.  Next, I heat embossed the lovely Rose Duet stencil. I stamped one of the images from the Art Marks set with acrylic paint and cleaned off the stamp immediately. Then, using a Stabilo pencil, I added shading to the flower and around the edges of the tag.  For some added sparkle I added two sizes of glass beads with some heavy matte gel.  I finished the tag off with a bit of beading cord.

Cannot wait to see what you make!  Just a gentle reminder...this is not a card challenge...it's anything BUT a card.  To ensure that you're eligible for the prizes each month, simply create a mixed media project, add a link to the challenge and show the challenge graphic...it's as easy as that!
