{Mixed Media Tutorial} Monochromatic Stenciled Tag by Sanna

Hello there lovelies, Sanna here again. It is again time to share another mixed media tutorial with you guys today. This time I created a monochromatic stenciled and stamped tag with a start-to-finish video.

 Here is the tag I created:


For this tag I've used one of my new stencils (Leaves 1) on a green toned patterned paper. I´ve added a stamped sentiment (STAMPlorations) and used two tones of green Distress Ink to color the background and to create the leaves pattern onto the background. 

I wanted to make the pattern stand out a little bit stronger, so I used a simple trick and added white gel pen outlining to the stenciled images. This way there is more contrast between the same toned paper and the inked leaves. I really like this look alot. 

For additional decor I´ve added a DIY dimentional paper flower and some glitter glue as well as the stamped sentiment. This tag is very easy to make! If you use different colours and a different stencil pattern and outline with a black pen, then the result will again be totally different. So many possibilities to use this technique on various projects!! Hope you give it a try!

Here is the start-to-finish video for you to watch:

I hope you enjoyed this little tag idea and get inspired to create something fun with stencil and stamps yourself!!! And I hope you will find some time to play along with us at the various STAMPlorations challenges!!! See you and

 Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
