' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: On the road again

On the road again

Welcome to my second inspiration piece for the Country View Challenge, where the theme chosen by Gabrielle is Stencils.

And I'm still travelling... this time with a Vintage tag:

I first blended 4 colours of Distress Oxides on a manilla tag.

Then I sprayed water through 2 stencils:

The wall stencil is difficult to see but you should be able to glimpse the woodgrain. Not that it matters, since it is totally obscured in the finished tag!

Now a bit of background stamping with the Scripted Streets by Visible Image.

Then, I used a DIY stencil (made with a Papertrey Ink Cover plate die) with transparent texture paste. After drying, I re-applied more D.O on top to show up the stencilled hexagons.

A piece of netting die-cut, corners and lace scraps serve as mat for the vintage image by Crafty Individuals (this is NOT a stamp).

I had a bit of "white" space left and I thought it was crying out for one of the Adventure Words from the Sizzix Thinlit die set, and more  hexagons (die-cut from cork sheet) so I obliged...
