Compendium of Curiosities III, #34

Challenge #34 is Layering Stencil: Monoprint which I made a tag.  This technique is on page 48 of the Compendium of Curiosities III book. 


The sponsor for this challenge is The Funkie Junkie Boutique who is giving away a $25.00 shopping spree.


To view this challenge, go HERE. There are a few rules, but if you are interested just go visit Linda Ledbetter's website for all the details. You must own your own copy of A Compendium of Curiosity Volume III to participate.

Again, I made a tag for this challenge.

"CREATIVITY BUTTERFLY" 
TAG

 


To start off with, I inked the front of the tag using three colors: Wild Honey, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves.  Then I inked the bottom portion only on the reversed side using the same colors.



Then I misted or dropped water on the tag to add to the background.

Next, I used two stencils.  One for the front of the tag and one for the back of the tag.  The Layered Stencils: Monoprint technique was used for both stencils as well as the same colors as I used for the background.



Score 1 3/4" from the bottom and fold on score line to make a pocket.

I used Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo die with textfade and and Tim Holtz Trellis die.  Which I inked using the same colors.


Next I used Tarnish Brass Distress Spray Stain.

I used Alcohol Ink - Gold Mixative on a small star.
Then I used gold paint on a word band and distress stain for ribbon.
Then put it all together and added some washi tape.
I made a small 2 x 3" tag for inside the pocket.  Inked it with Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves.  Then added a star stamp with Peacock Feathers ink.  Lastly, I add a phrase.

This was the final challenge in this series.  I do plan on doing the next series where ever Tim comes out with the next book.

Beautiful pocket tag, Melissa. Your art is wonderful and I'm sad that you were not able to join in on more challenges! :) I love the colors you've chosen here on your background. The spritz and flick technique works well with the monoprint technique. I like your choice of stencils and colors to use on that, too! Your finished tag with the Ideaology Tissue Tape, embossed butterfly, die cuts and tag is really sweet. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

What a clever tag! Love that little pocket. The stencils you chose were really effective with this technique, especially the strip. It gave a really interesting mono print. Excellent job! Thanks for sharing your art with CC3C!!
