Happy Birthday Houses

Hi there,

it's time for another Stencil Sunday Post over at the STAMPlorations Blog and this is the tag I created:

  • create a background using the new Paper Artsy Infusions (Golden Sands, Lemoncello, Orange County, The Sage) on a tag cut from watercolor paper
  • apply Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke) through the ARTplorations Weathered Wood stencil
  • add a border with the help of the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements stamp set and Memento Luxe (Tuxedo Black)
  • add texture by stamping the STAMPlorations Big Numbers Background with Memento (Rich Cocoa) and by applying Distress Ink (Black Soot) through the ARTplorations Dots all over stencil
  • add some splatters with the Finetec Mica Watercolor (Regal Bronze)
  • stamp some houses from the STAMPlorations Houses stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) using the masking technique
  • color the image with Delta an Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • cut out the Memory Box Paintbrush Happy twice from black cardstock and layers them on top of each other
  • after gluing this first part of the sentiment down cover it with Glossy Accents for more shine and dimension
  • add the second part of the sentiment using the Dymo Label Maker
  • dye a piece of seam binding with the same Infusions colors used on the background and thread it through the hole of the tag
