June Stencil Sunday

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome to another Stencil Sunday in June. My 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 tag with a vintage feel ...

I started off with a Gelli Plate print from a while ago. As I had used the Bubbles stencil at the time, i decided to dry emboss the die-cut tag using the same stencil for added texture. I then played around with Distress Oxides on the tag and swirl before adding some shading using golden copper decorating chalks and black Versafine stamping with stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set. I stamped the large Zinnia on newspaper print paper, fuzzy cut and sponged it with Old Paper DI. At this point I also blended the tag's edges with the same ink.
I added a doodled border, attached the swirl, added some rub-on sentiments and star,, set the floral eyelet and attached my flower before finishing off with sequins and ribbon.

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.

  1. The gelli plate background is great and love the circle stencil and the glorious colours. Great idea to make the zinnia flower out of newspaper print. Thank you for the inspiration x
