I do love playing with stencils and tags. I used the Layering Stencils Technique on my tag.....
I started with a #8 Ranger Tag. Stenciled Tim Holtz Cargo letters by sponging White acrylic paint with a blending tool. This acts as a resist so no matter how many layers of stenciling and stamping the letters will show thru if you rub off some of the inks.
Next I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Peacock Feathers with my blending tool. Then the fun began with sponging more DI's thru stencils. I used T.H. Dot Fade, Stripes, and Splatters.
Next I stamped STAMPlorations' Shery Russ's "Scribbly Splattery Grunge" and "ART Is" sentiment stamp sets and an old SU lettering stamp using Archival black ink.
I stamped with Archival Black ink Dina Wakely's "Scribbly Bird" onto my tag and stamped again on Arches Cold Press 140# paper. I colored my bird using DI's and a paint brush, fussy cut and layered over the stamped image on the tag.
My last steps..adding a little SU ret. Washi Tape to ground my bird, sponging DI's: Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain along the edge of the tag to bring all the layers together and dyeing SU Daffodil Delight Seam Binding with Distress Inks.
Such a fun Layering Stencils Mixed Media Tag. Here is the YouTube video Layering Stencils Part 1 by Tim Holtz that really helped me with all my steps. Enjoy and Happy tag making :-)
