Stencilled tags

Hi! It's Thursday again so it's Georgina here with my regular Thursday post.
Today I have two stencilled tags to share with you.

For my first tag I used the pretty Glitz Craft Wildflower stencil available from Lisa B Designs. I cut a large tag shape from smooth white card. I lightly distressed the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress ink pad.

I positioned the Wildflower stencil on top of the tag as shown below. I used Post-it notes to mask off areas to prevent colour from going there. I coloured the leaf and stem area first with Forest Moss Distress Ink. I then masked off the areas before adding the purple to the flowerheads.

I used Hobby Art Scene it Sentiments stamp set for the wording. I stamped this with Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. To finish I added faux stitching and ribbon.

For my second tag I used Imagination Vine Trellis Border stencil and Old Rose Sparkle Medium. To start I cut a large tag shape from white card.

I cut a rectangle of patterned card to fit onto the tag. I used the stencil and Sparkle Medium to add the design to the patterned card. I masked-off the circle so it was kept clear. Once dry I added it to the tag.

I punched butterflies from the remaining patterned card. To finish the tag I stamped a sentiment from the Hobby Art Birthday Collection using a Onyx Black VersaFine ink pad.

  1. Lovely designs, especially like the windflower stencil

  2. hi, love your tags, the stencil on the first one is very pretty, xx

  3. These are really pretty. I like the 3D effect of the butterflies on the second tag and the masked off patterned circle. Clever-might use that when I become more proficient at using stencils. I have made a start though!
    Thank you, Jan

  4. Both are fab but I do like the first one best - it is all about the image and the colours and shading on it are fantastic tfs Karen x
