As part of the Tag Craft Challenge, there are weekly prompts. They do not have to be used but are great suggestions and I use them a challenge to learn new techniques or use neglected supplies I have in the craft hoard. This three piece stencil from Plaid was one such neglected supply.
Using an ink blender tool, Distress ink was applied to a manila tag through a three piece stencil. Different parts of the stencil were used to get the different color effects. Colors of distress ink used were Shaded Lilac and Weathered Wood. Images were stamped directly onto the tag using Archival Ink Jet Black. Images are from Non Sequitur Stamps and Lost Coast Designs. Washi tape and Tim Holtz Tissue Tape were adhered to the top of the tag.
