Challenge: Stamps + Stencils


Stamps + stencils = fun.

Take some distress ink and color with the stencil… but wait! Leave that stencil right where it is and add some paste…


Not perfect – get funky..


Oh and while it is there? mist it just a bit.


Oh sweet color and texture combinations!!

Then it was a matter of adding my (distress) colored bee, some tissue, and other finishing accents to my tag.


LOVE how this one turned out!

  1. I love this! Awesome texture. Very empowering too. I’ve used my stamps and stencils together in my art journal, but not on a cohesive project like a layout or tag. Inspiring. Love the videos, too, caught up yesterday. I got this mist color after seeing you use it in Camp Scrap, and it’s a favorite. Thanks. Michelle t

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your tag!! Thanks for sharing! Sometimes I just need a push in the right direction! 🙂 Thanks!!

  3. You ARE the queen bee, May. Did the texture paste dry clear so you could see the color underneath or did the mist color it?

  4. Great tutorial and amazing tag! I am especially keen on the embellishments you chose to combine. That strip of lace flowers looks amazing! I also adore the sentiment and bee, which made me smile. You always have such an eye for combining things in such a unique and refreshing way!
