STAMPlorations~ Sunday Stencil~ INSPIRE

Good morning crafty peeps! It's that time again...
A new challenge starts today at STAMPlorations!! Woohoo! 

The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card! Just remember you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. You have until the end of the month to play! 

So this month I played with STAMPlorations
Art Marks and ARTplorations Happy Flowers along with some Brushos pigment powders. 

I started by sprinkling some Brushos onto watercolor paper I die cut into a tag.  I sprinkled on Gamboge and Brilliant Red until I achieved the color I was going for, and then let it air dry. Once dry, I used the Happy Flowers stencil and used Ranger texture paste and let that dry completely. I placed the stencil back on and sprayed with Post Box Red Dylusions Spray so I could get the vibrant red color. I then stamped the circles and paint splatters in red and orange Memento Inks onto my background.   I doodled a white border around the tag and stamped the INSPIRE sentiment with Black Archival Ink using my MISTI. I then decided to trace my stenciled flowers with a Black Sharpie Marker and use the SN Sparkle Pen in Clear to make them stand out a bit more with a bit of shimmer. I then adhered it to a black tag base and finished with some seam binding that I dyed with the Brilliant Red Brushos. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today and play along with us this month! :o)

Great tag hun - love the vibrant colors and you would think that was a stamp you had used not a stencil
