Stained and Stencilled Tags

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here and I am thrilled to be the Guest Designer this month for Eclectic Paperie.  Thanks so much Kim.

I received some wonderful products to work with this month and I used the same products to create 3 different tags.  I hate to waste ink, stain, or paint and I try to find ways to use up all the color on a stencil rather than wiping it off. 

Supplies:

Tim Holtz Stencil - Blossom
Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Abandoned Coral
Gelli Arts Rubber Brayer
Bo Bunny Stickers - Gabrielle Collection
Ribbon



 
Tag #1
Create a tag from watercolor paper
Place Blossom Stencil on top and ink with Abandoned Coral Stain
Ink edges of tag with Abandoned Coral Stain, then mat with cardstock
Wrap with ribbon
Adhere to Coral cardstock
Select stickers, mat with cardstock and add to tag
 
 
 
Tag #2
Flip stencil over onto another piece of watercolor paper
Using a brayer, roll over stencil to release the left over stain
Ink edges of tag with Abandoned Coral Stain, then mat with cardstock
Wrap with ribbon
Adhere to Coral cardstock
Select stickers, mat with cardstock and add to tag
 

 
Tag #3
Create a tag from watercolor paper
Place stencil on top and rub over it with a baby wipe releasing the remaining stain (you get a nice subtle design)
Ink edges of tag with Abandoned Coral Stain, then mat with cardstock
Wrap with ribbon
Adhere to coral cardstock
Select stickers, mat with cardstock and add to tag
 
 
 
 So what do you think?  Do you use all the color off your stencils?

Please stop by my blog to see more of my projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Steph
