DDTIO - Black and Stencils

My lovely talented friend Helen chose this fortnight's theme at DragonsDream Tag It On and it's "black and stencils". The tag I made is a complete accident! I had a whole other idea but found myself making this and as I enjoyed making it I thought I'd share this one! I'll make the other one some other time!
I sprayed a tag with Fresh Lime Dylusions spray and then, when dry drew through a stencil and used Dyan's wavy ruler to make two boxes.
Then I used Black Marble ink in water pen before adding some Wendy Vecchi stencils in paint over the top.
I then added a figure by putting paint through a Dylusions stencil and then stamping a sentiment. I really enjoyed this one Helen! Great choice! I hope you will join in with Helen's this time - we've had some awesome entries this year! The rules are simple -  use a tag and at least one stamp!

I love that colour combination. Each colour makes the other pop. Symbiosis at it's finest! Lx

Loving that lime green background. It's the perfect complement to set off the silhouette of the figure. That sentiment is brilliant too! So true! Lovely response to a great theme from Helen. It's nice to have a challenge that really gets the creative brain cells charging! xxx

Glad you had fun - I love your tag, the background is amazing, very funky sixties vibe to it, and the stencil lady adds to it. Perfect! Love the quote, wonder who you might be aiming that one at!!

Your tag looks SO cool! Black with one other color has an impact like no other. Your tag design is fabulous. And the sentiment...ain't that the sad truth! hahaha
