May Stencil Sunday

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome to another Stencil Sunday in May. May I take the opportunity to remind you of the current Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As you know Anything Mixed Media Goes as long as it is not a card and you use at least one stencil.

My DT contribution for this Stencil Sunday is ... a uplifting and encouraging tag ...

Today I had one of my 'I wonder, if...' moments, sponged the Luggage tag with Strawberry Slush ink, let it dry, sprinkled some Violet Storm Infusion Powder through the Prisms stencil, spritzed with water and held my breath .....

Phew! I could breathe again, the little experiment worked. Whilst it was drying, I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut the Cool Chick, stamped and snipped up the sentiment and die-cut another Luggage tag as backing. I added some white watercolour splatters and a strip of Washi, glued on the backing tag, attached the chick and sentiment, added some white doodles and finished off with sequins and ribbon.

I am really pleased with the amount of depth I achieved by simply adding the doodles. There is a little close-up below.

I hope you feel inspired to create something different, maybe even do some up-cycling or re-purposing .... why not link it up with the Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme is always Anything Mixed Media Goes except cards which means projects such as tags, ATCs, canvases, layouts, art journal pages etc,are perfect for entering, and you must have used at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The challenge will close at the end of the month. You can find the full challenge details plus more Mixed Media inspiration here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share.

Have a lovely day!
