WTH, I did not care for this tag. Only because I don't have any of the stencils. They aren't here yet. So, no I didn't get to fully enjoy Tim's technique:( But it's me and as you know I end up finding my way! So, I made a couple of my own stencils. OK, we can all take a moment to marvel at my crafty prowess...(snicker)
And moment over!
To make the "star" stencil I used thick acetate and ran it through the new Crescent Moon and Stars die. I know, cool right. I don't have paste either. Equal parts modge podge glue, water and flour. No, those aren't spots you're seeing in my stars. We'll get to those darn dots in a moment.
LOOK, something I do have! Sorta, I just used a Sharpie around the Chit Chat words. But hey, I'll take it! I did make some "HOMEMADE" stencils with some of the dies I own. It worked ok!
Remember, no stencils yet so I used the star burst and the dot embossing folders. I simply inked up my embossing folders and brayered them onto the tag. And that's why my stars have spots. It's not a great effect but you have to work around what you have.
I do have the butterfly stamp but I love this Vintage Hot Air Balloon!
I think if I had some of the stencils I could really have some fun. I do like the soft edges when stenciling. How'd I do? Pass or Fail????
I love comments like I love crafting.
