This month I am that lucky person who is the host of the July challenge of the Country View Challenges. The theme that I chose is Use a stencil or two. This means you have to use at least one stencil to join our challenge with your project. It's really not complicated, is it?
Here is my first project, a tag that I made with only one stencil but I used three times with three different embossing powders.
While I was making this tag, I took several photos. So I can give you a step by step tutorial.
First, I cut out a tag from 300 gsm watercolour paper with Sizzix Movers&Shapers Tag&Bookplates die. Then I coloured the tag with the following Distress paints: Speckled Egg, Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn. For this, I always use a piece of sponge and I add the paint to the surface with tapping movements.
What I used:
Sizzix Movers&Shapers die, Tag&Bookplates
Stampers Anonymous layered stencil, Wildflower
Stampers Anonymous stamp set, Tiny Text
Ranger Distress Archival inks (Ground Espresso, Black Soot, Vintage Photo)
Ranger Distress paints (Antique Linen, Picket Fence, Speckled Egg, Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage)
Ranger embossing powders (Weathered White, Potting Soil, Peeled Paint)
So if you have a project in which you use a stencil or two, please don't hesitate to join our July challenge where a randomly selected winner can have a £20 voucher to spend in the Country View Crafts online shop.
With my tag, I would like to join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Anything Goes
