TEXTURED TAG tutorial by Carol

Hi there, Carol here today with my tutorial for November. Today I'll show you how I used my stencil to add texture to this tag without the need for messy pastes....or the drying time!

I smooshed a tag with distress paints and allowed it to dry.

After taping my tag to the Weathered Wood stencil, I ran it through the Grand Caliber to emboss it, this shows the reverse of the tag so you can see the depth of texture.

I taped the tag and stencil to my craft mat then inked the tag with distress ink using the darkest of the green paints I'd used on the tag.

I then added some stamping using various stamps from the Mixed Media Elements set using Archival ink.

I added sentiments using the Vignette: Christmas Block set, then adhered my die cuts, ribbon and button to finish.

Items used:
ARTplorations: Weathered Wood stencil

Memory Box; Glowing Candles die

I hope you've enjoyed this month's tutorial and I'll see you again next month.
