Fun With Stencils - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Fun With Stencils

Featuring stamps and dies by

Tim Holtz

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

But… If you have some of their product in your stash

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

My Stencil of choice for this challenge is:

The Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set #51

So excited to share all the fun elements on this Tag with you.

It all starts with the tags base.

For this I went into my scrap basket and picked out a bunch of coordinating strips of paper.

I decided on a pattern and glued the strips down onto plain white card stock.

While the paper was drying, I decided how I wanted to work with the stencil.

 I was feeling a bit experimental and thought about trying texture paste and vellum with the stencil.

First, I cut out the vellum with a tag die cut.

To make the vellum stable to work with, I had to tack the vellum tag down with double sided tape.

Next, I placed the stencil on top of the vellum and carefully smeared the texture paste over the top.

I slowly lifted the stencil to revel the design. I left the vellum tag to dry still tacked down to the tape.

To finish up this tag, I first die-cut out my homemade striped paper with a tag die.

I added on my vellum layer with spray adhesive so that the vellum layer

 would dry clear, and you could still see the colors that I used in the background.

I chose flowers from the Funky Floral #2 dies and die cut them out.

Using my Spectrum Noir Markers, I added some color to the flowers.

The flowers are added to the front of the tag with foam tape.

Finally, I chose the sentiment “take risks” from the small talk stickers book.

Some Gold Stickles on the flowers finished this tag.

This completes my take on Fun with Stencils
