Over on the Paperartsy blog they are up to topic 12 for the challenge which this time is stencils.
Here is a giant size 12 tag I created for the challenge which was very much inspired by Leandra's tag in the video:
Created the background using a store card and Fresco paints in Wisteria, Hint of Mint and Ice Blue.
Stamped the flower stalk from Lin Brown set ELB16 then used the co-ordinating stencil to colour the flower head using Pansy, Snowflake, Bougenvillia and Rose. Then stamped the flower head, not perfect which is a bit annoying but close enough I guess!
Next I added Grunge Paste tinted with Guacamole through another Lin Brown stencil, once dry I added some Hey Pesto in places. I also coloured the flower stem with Hey Pesto.
Some more stencilling in the background using white paint and a couple of TCW stencils including the little butterfly done with the leftover flower head paint.
A bit of extra stamping with the little circle stamps from the same plate using purple ink.
I stamped the quote out from ELB05, cut it out, edged with black and added to the tag.
Finally I edged the whole tag with black ink to finish.
Biggest tag I've ever made lol but I kinda like it :)
