STAMPlorations~ Sunday Stencil~ What I am...

Happy Sunday everyone! Sharing a tag I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #65. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 

 I used Build me a Rose and Honeycomb Delight Mini ARTplorations Stencils with  a sentiment from Strong Women.

I started with  a #8 Manilla tag and applied a base layer of gesso. Once dry, I applied Distress Crayons in Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge and added some water droplets. I then used the stencils with Distress Inks. I highlighted the top rose and honeycomb with a White Molotow Pen. I adhered it to a black tag base and finished with a netted red ribbon. :o)
