Another Tag, Another Doodle (with a difference)

In my quest to keep playing and experimenting as often as I can, I sat down this afternoon and pulled out one of my pre-cut white tags. Yes, it's been doodled upon once more but this time, ever so slightly differently. This time, I incorporated a stencil. Specifically a leaf stencil by That Special Touch.




I sprayed the tag with a mix of Mister Hueys and Dylusions colours before swiping a couple of the edges with distress stain. I laid the stencil over the top once dried with a heat gun and inked the outline of the stencil. I then, quite hamfistedly added some shading to the leaves and doodle within the gaps. I took a grey Promarker and filled the spaces inside the leaves. I added a frame around the tag with a black marker to add the finishing touch and that is as easy as it gets.

Hope you have all enjoyed your weekend and managed to sneak some creativity in. The visit from the Aunt-in-Law went well, though I politely ducked out after dinner (& yes the lamb was gorgeous) given that she really wanted to chat to Nick & it was all about family members whom I had no clue about.

Off to relax now in a hot bath ( I always seem to be blogging before a bath) with gentle music playing in the background.

Hi; been away and trying to catch up a bit now I'm back and most of the family have left. Love the tag and the depth you've achieved. Enjoy the rest of the evening.

My goodness, that looks 3D! I thought at first it was metal ... Brilliantly done, Paul. You are on a creative roll (and I wish I was on whatever you're on!).

I really like this one Paul. As several people have already commented, the dimension and depth are really dramatic - an optical illusion tag! Lindsay x x

Probably my favourite so far in terms of background - love the stencil you've used.

Your tag is really classy and whilst I love the depth of shades it is odd to see you working quite dark..... is it a mood swing?
Any chance we'll see you for Vicky Stampers? Haven't seen you in ages.
