I thought this was going to be easy this week. Wrong! What to do with soo many stencils and a blank brain?!

Oh, well, I 'came good' and here is the result of my endeavours. The pictures don't actually do it justice, (if I may say so myself).

And a close-up

I used two different stencils and dabbed red and yellow paints through them for the background. Then I used a leaf stencil and an orange paint, over which I rubbed red oil pastel and antique gold rubbing wax, (such a shame the glimmer doesn't show up here).  
I stamped #CE1-2E Bohemian Woman, from Rubber Dance Art Stamps, and embossed her using a gold glitter powder to make her twinkle. (like me, hehe).
Finally I added a quote and coloured my ribbon using the same paints as on the tag.

I want to thank you all for the lovely comments on my Rapunzel tag last week, they were very much appreciated and I look forward to seeing your stencil art this week. Have a good one, and stay well ((hugs))


  1. Lovely tag, it's always hard to take pics of shine and glitter! Valerie

  2. Beautiful tag and I love the glitter addition

  3. Lovely autumn feel to this one, Mo! I like the leafy background. Carolyn xx

  4. I thought the same thing, stencils, easy, but somehow I stood there staring at my supplies without end. :) Sometimes easy can be the most difficult, but I absolutely love your tag.

  5. Great idea for a tag. I like your analogy, it made me smile! It's very pretty too.
