Stenciled Tag Tutorial!

I'm posting today over at the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog and I'm sharing this Prima Doll Tag as a tutorial!

 I first started by cutting a tag the size I wanted and then pulled out some stencils and Distress Inks.

I used more Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and a Tim Holtz butterfly stamp to stamp a light image on the bottom left of my tag.

For my ribbon I used some seam binding ribbon and rubbed Distress Stains directly onto it, then I spritzed lightly with water and crumpled the ribbon with my fingers before drying with my heat gun. This blends some of the colours and crinkles it nicely.

Now, it was time to create the Prima Paper Doll that I wanted to use on the tag! I'm really liking the way these dolls look stamped on a script paper, so I stamped my doll directly onto the script paper shown in the picture below and then used a light peach Prismacolor Marker, which is alcohol based, to colour in the face and skin areas.

I used the yellow floral paper, from the CTMH  Brushed Paper Collection to paper piece her hair and paper from the Crate Paper Flea Market Maggie Holmes paper pad for her clothes. I also used journaling cards from the Picture My Life CTMH Skylark Collection to layer behind the doll.

I added some paper flowers and gems to my tag and a couple layers of ribbon along the bottom of the tag.

I wanted to add a quote, so I used the Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers, cut apart to fit inside a frame I diecut with a Spellbinder's Die. I traced around the quote with a black pen and added a heart sequin to finish it off.

I love this quote - it reminds me that my day is so much better when I take a few minutes to think of what I'm thankful for first thing in the morning. Then, instead of focusing on anything that might be negative I'm feeling happy about those big and little things that make life amazing!
