Here's my version of Tim's June tag using the stencil print technique. I didn't have the dinky inkpads so I adapted this to use blocks of colour (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge) creating a graduated effect. I used the Bubble stencil. The colour palette was inspired by the latest Our Creative Corner Challenge - Flaming June.
This tag is all about my great affection for bees - these adorable little creatures are getting more scarce and we need to save them! Plant bee-friendly gardens people!
I had a bit of a play before I finished my tag and my tips for this technique are:
-You HAVE to use the ink straight from the pad - and really squidge it on there to get good coverage
-If you want the tag bright and relatively crisp like mine don't use too much water - if you want a more watercoloured look, use more water
-Chunkier stencils work better (had a play with my fave Doily stencil and it looked like a muddy mess!)
Am totally in love with Paula's bow and can see this being used on lots and lots of tags!
Stamps are my very favourite Wendy Vecchi stamps - I totally love them!
