The awesome Stencil Girl stencils I received were some of the awesome Seth Apter Stencils! Got to say I love these, and they were so easy to use.. I used the Unfinished Stencil with a little bit of distress ink and mono printed the background of my tag! Sigh.. I love how this turned out!!
I then of course got to work with a little bit of pink rubber!! I stamped my images onto some manila card and fussy cut and inked the edges with walnut ink distress sign.. ( yet another sigh!!)
I then put these to one side and machine stitched around the edges of my tag!
I also stamped the Be True saying stamp onto my tag with archival ink in jet black. Next came the fun part.. arranging all my stamped images and other chosen embellishments. Including some of the gorgeous new Button Mash from UmWow Studio! these just make me happy!
After a bit of arranging and rearranging, adding in and taking out of bit and bobs.. this was how my tag turned out!
And of course we really can not go past a few close ups of some of these gorgeous elements! I absolutely love the detail and texture The Unfinished Stencil gives the background layered over my background paper from the Nature walk collection by 7Dots Studio and teamed with a little waybill/invoice background stamp from VLVS!
Lots of yummy Idea-ology of course!!
