Happy Tuesday! I love it when my artwork pops up in my ‘memories’ on facebook. The project I’m sharing with you today is from several years ago, but since it features a couple different techniques with stencils I thought it would be a fun one to re-visit! It’s also just a happy little project that I hope brings a smile (and maybe a bit of sunshine) to your day!
enjoy this little throwback…
Today I’ve got a tag to share with you- hope it adds some happy to your day! Links to products I used are at the bottom of this post 🙂
I wiped some white gesso on the tag as a base, stamped the cone flower in black archival ink and colored it with Distress Crayons and a water brush. I added some washi tape and texture paste over that, adding some scratchy details with texture brushes. The blossoms were stenciled with a combination of two fabulous Distress Ink colors (the same colors were used to dye my crinkle ribbon!).
I stenciled these moths/bees with texture paste then inked over them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink once they were dry.
Here’s a look at the tag without the ribbon topper:
- Distress Crayons Set
- Flower Garden Stamp
- Daily Buzz stencil
- Distress Ink in Abandon Coral, Carved Pumpkin & Vintage Photo
- Mini blending tool & foam

- Palette Knife (or an old credit card or hotel room key!)
