Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Use a Mask or Stencil


It's been a while since I've joined the Fashionable Stamping Challenges. The project for this week is Challenge #58 - Use a Mask or Stencil . I decided to use a stencil and really love the way the tag turned out. I have also added this tag to the Cheerful Stamp Pad, Challenge #71 Lets Stencil.

I used acrylic paint from Folk Art in Tapioca to paint the stencil on the blank tag, then used Distress Ink in Crushed Olive. I spritzed it lightly with water to activate the Distress Ink and dried it. The next step was to spritz it randomly with Perfect Pearls Mist in Sunflower Sparkle then padded the stenciled area with a paper towel, then dried. After it was dry, I stamped the main image of the eye [they saying around the eye reads: "the eye sees a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination awake"] and stamped the small scroll a few times. I used a white gel pen to highlight the square around the eye. I tried to capture the beautiful shimmer that the tag has and hope that you can see it in the pictures.

Thank you for stopping by!!! :)
