Here is my tag for Day 5
I went crazy with stencils on my tag. I used 3 ARTploration stencils, 1 Tim Holtz and 1 TCW stencil.
I die cut my largest Luggage Tag from a manila T. H. tag and started by covering with a layer of Gesso, let dry and sponged Distress Inks to cover white Gesso. Then the fun began with the stencils.
I started with the TCW stencil, then the T.H. stencil, then my 3 Artplorations stencils. Sponging with sponge daubers and Distress Inks.
Next, using my palette knife, I went over my stenciled hearts and bird with Golden's Molding Paste. The paste absorbed the DI inks from the images as it dried. To make the images pop more I traced with a permanent black pen.
I traced around the edge of the tag with a shimmer gold ink pen and my black marker to frame the tag. Added my ribbon, rhinestones, CUTplorations Smile and done. There was a lot of drying time, but a really fun project.
Adding to more Challenges.
