Always Shine!

This month at Country View Crafts Challenges we are using stencils and encouraging you to as well! This tag has a few stencilled images as well as stamped ones!
The background has paint applied to it (white, pink and blue) and then, when dry, I used some Cut and Dry foam and applied white paint through a dotty stencil (apologies for the messy craft mat!)
I added a (Wendy Vecchi) striped stencil border to the top and bottom of the tag using Broken China Distress Ink then drew round them in white pen. I added a (Ellen Vargo) stamped border down each side of the tag and added a white dot in the circles. 
The figure was a composite of stamps on tissue paper (painting the reverse so the design stays clear) and I drew round the image with charcoal pencil to give it a little depth.
The final stage was to add the sentiment, again a Wendy Vecchi stencil, 'painted' with Cut and Dry foam and outlined in white pen. As a final flourish I added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges. I hope you've joined in with us this month - we love to see the terrific projects you make!
