Butterfly Tag with STAMPlorations


Hi there!

Welcome to another stencil sunday which is on the STAMPlorations blog today.
I'm sharing a mixed media butterfly tag.


I started on a Brusho background and added some stenciling with PanPastel on top. In the next step I added gesso on the left and acrylic paint on top. I used different stamps to add some texture and black splatters for some interest. The butterflies are stamped separately and cut out.

Watercolor Tags with Brushos and STAMPlorations




Hi my dear crafty friends!

I want to give you step by step instructions for these two watercolor tags. I used one of my Brusho backgrounds. I love to play with these awesome powders.

1. Create a background with Brusho powders. I alternate in adding water with a spray bottle and Brusho pigments until I am happy.


2. I have a homemade tag stencil with which I can choose where to cut my tags from.


3. I ended up with these two backgrounds:


4. To add some texture to them I use the ARTplorations stencils "Nestled Circles", "Square Links" and "Tribal Swirl". Instead of adding any color through the stencils, I only add water with a spray bottle.


5. Remove the stencil and let the color react with the water. Dab it off with a paper towel. You'll end up with some pretty ghosting textures.



 6. My background is not done yet. I add some splatters for more interest.




7. Now it's time to stamp the main images and the titles. I use black pigment ink together with the "Small Birds" and the " Large Hummingbird" stamp set.


8. The sentiments are from the "Font Expressions" and "Follow your Arrow" sets.


 9. Finally I color the images. I use Pastel Pencils for the first one...


... and colored pencils for the second.






Thank you for stopping by today!!!
xx Susanne.
