STAMPlorations~ February Challenge!

Happy Sunday crafty friends! It's that time again...
A new challenge starts today at STAMPlorations! :o)

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!   

Here is a lil' tag I made using ARTplorations  Weaving stencil and STAMPlorations Always Time for Tea stamp set.

I started with a tag cut from watercolor paper and then added Ranger TexturePaste thru the Weaving Stencil in the top left and bottom right corners.  After that paste dried, I  then wet the paper with paperto prepare for my watercoloring. I used my Kuretake GansaiTambi Watercolors and applied  No. 44 & No. 139 in layers; drying in between layers. 

I stamped and embossed the teacups from the ALWAYS TIME FOR TEA stamp set onto Wisteria Paper from BasicGrey. I fussy cut them out and layered them on top of eachother creating a slit in the bottom cup with my Exacto knife. I adhered them with Golden Matte Medium. I stamped a sentiment from the same set with Jet Black Archival Ink as I thought it needed some black. I  then cut a slit in the top cup and added the flower sprigs from Melissa Francis Embellishments. Some faux white stitching along the edge of the tag with my White Molotow Pen finished it off. :o)

There, we have it, another fun make using the fabulous stamps and stencils from STAMPlorations. :o) I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty and join in our challenge.
