SIMON SAYS GIVE ME AN "S" . . . .
Since I've now collected a few stencils, I thought I would use them again and make a tag to enter in the "S" Challenge at
simonsaysshowandshare.blogspot.com. I used a couple of different STENCILS and STAMPS to make this tag. First, I colored the background with Weathered Wood Distress Ink, and then stenciled polka dots over it with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. Next I blended several Distress Inks in the background, including Wild Honey, Scattered Straw and Rusty Hinge. I stenciled the flower head with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo and the stem and leaves with Crushed Olive. The bird was stenciled with Black Soot. I stamped the butterfly and verse with Memento Black Ink. I colored the butterfly image with Weathered Wood and Rusty Hinge, cut it out and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added a little SPARKLE to the butterfly with blue stones. The verse says "There are always flowers for those who want to see". The verse, bird, and butterfly were from Wendy Vecchi.
