Masterboard Tag Using Artistcellar Stencils

I can't believe it is Tuesday already!  Time is flying by.  I am still making tags out of the master boards I made several weeks ago.

 Whenever I make master boards with spray inks and I always blot my stencils off on a separate piece of paper getting a reverse image of the first paper.  Kind of a two-for-one deal.  I used the Water Series stencils, more specifically Ripples and Sea foam to create a master board a few weeks ago.  First I sprayed Dylusions Spray Ink in Calypso Teal and then Dirty Martini, blotting off the excess ink along the way.  I dried the ink as I went along with my heat gun.  When the blue and green ink was dry I sprayed Dandelion irRESISTible Texture Spray over the top using Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Silhouette Script stencil.    I ended up with two very different papers.

First master board

Second bonus sheet of blotted ink

I cut both sheets into postcards and tags.  To make the second paper even more different I smeared some gesso across the sheet with the TCW Numerals stencil.  This tag is made from the second sheet of paper and includes an alphabet stamp from Dyan Reaveley's stamps.  The main character and the cat are from Stampotique stamps.  This was made for a Poe challenge so the little quote is torn from a piece of book text from "The Black Cat".  It says "I grew, day by day, more moody."  Uh, yeah, he looks a little moody.... I tried to brighten his mood with the color coordinated bow on the top.  I don't think it's working.

I hope this finds you all well!  I'll see you next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas.  Hugs ~ Renee

  3. I couldn't help but think after reading Jackie's post that she needs to come visit me, then we need to come visit you! I love any series that results from your master board creations, Renée, and this is certainly no exception. I love Stampotique and I love Edgar Allen Poe, so your tag creation today is definitely a favorite of mine. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and I wish you a very Happy New Year!
