How about a challenge that allows you to play with anything you want? This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is anything goes. I decided to play with my favorite tags!
Tags are one of my favorite things because it allows me to try out some new ideas and keep them on hand to look back at and see the techniques. This time I played with stencils and embossing paste.
This tag started with a soft background image. Then I applied the Wendy Vecchi Crackle Texture Embossing Paste through the stencil. After the paste dried I sponged on blue dye ink and then added a hint of brown dye ink to showcase the texture. I stamped the sentiment in the background. The butterfly is stamped on vellum with a painted backside of white acrylic paint with the front stamped using Stazon ink and sponged with blue distress ink.
For my second tag I played with a different stencil:
Products: Bee, Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms, Wendy Vecchi Stencil, Wendy Vecchi - White Embossing Paste, STAEDTLER watercolor pencils, DarkRoom Door Floral Texture Stamp, Impression Obsession In a Garden, Ranger Archival Ink - Black, Potting Soil, Saffron, StaZon - Timber Brown, White Acrylic Paint, Ranger Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Broken China, Wendy Vecchi - Crackle Texture Paste, Penny Black Promenade Stencil, Stampendous Butterfly
