DT: Back to Basics and Beyond: masks and stencils

Hi there.

I’ve joined another design team, this time for a challenge blog called Back to Basics and Beyond where there is a different technique or product type to be tried out every fortnight.

This fortnight we are showcasing stencils and masks and I’ve made this tag card for my contribution.

So how did I make it? Well here are my step by step instructions…

I grabbed some fresco finish paints and painted the tag in chartreuse and then put the stencil over the tag to stencil the outline of the flower in bora bora.

Then I snipped the mask and the debt in apart so I could fill in the flower with the bora bora and jade to provide a blended look. Next I placed the flower mask over the flower and stencilled the dots over the background.

Next I took the coordinating stamp and stamped the flower using prawn paint. I then took a white paint pen and started adding some doodles.

I again added the mask back over it to create the shading of the prawn around the flower. Once again replaced the mask and added some splashes of the prawn paint using my fan brush.

Next I started adding black pen marks too to add contrast. And the love word was a rub on from a Tim Holtz pack.

I also added some pale pink sequins and some island indigo ribbon.

Now to add this as a topper to a card. I decided to repeat the dots stencilling and this time used the prawn to add the dots. Then I raised the tag on foam tape to give it a little dimension.

Jobs a good’un!

Love this arty tag and the stencil and mask combo did all the hardwork for me!

Looking forward to seeing what the rest of the design team made and please do pop along to see them and join in the challenge too.

Happy crafting!
