Hello!  Lee-Anne here today with a stenciled flower and tag tutorial for you. 

For the flower, I started out with a simple piece of white crinoline:

I taped the crinoline down to my craft sheet and then taped the ARTplorations Shutters stencil over top before adding Archival Inks in three colors:

Here's what it looks like after adding the three colors.  I repeated this with two more times, once with the ARTplorations Gridlocked stencil and once with the Chevron Crazy stencil:

Next I die cut my flowers:

Added some Distress Ink and water to my craft sheet and dipped the flowers in it.  Then they were dried with my heat tool:

For a bit of bling, I added some Brushed Pewter Distress Paint:

Here's the completed flower:

Next, I added three colors of Distress Ink to my craft sheet and dragged a tag through it several times. I dried the tag and then taped the ARTplorations Bloom Silhouettes stencil over top of it.  I added more of the same Brushed Pewter Distress Paint through the stencil:

And here's what it looks like after drying:

And here's my tag complete sentiment from STAMPlorations Typografia,  stenciled flower and ribbon:

Just one of the many ways to use a stencil or two :)  I hope I've inspired you to try something different today!
