Stencils & Masks at Frilly and Funkie

Marjie is hosting this newest challenge and now the Funkie team is up to bat!  For all the details, please check out Frilly and Funkie and of course while there, you will feast your eyes on some great inspiration! 
For my tag, I used the newest Seasonal Distress Ink colors and aren't they lovely!  Now I don't go to bright that often, but I just loved how these inks worked together.  These are available in Linda's store as well as the reinkers and at a great price.  I cut my own masks from Tim's Sewing Room and Movers and Shapers.  Placed them on the tag I cut from Manila Card Stock and then did the inking thing with all three new colors.  Did a little random stamping and then carefully removed my masks.  I then used the negative mask areas to ink some color and stamp inside the masked objects.  I really liked how that turned out!  I cut out three buttons and inked with the three colors and embossed as I wanted an extra layer of interest.  The plan was to mount these on chipboard, but I forgot.  Once these were punched through and tied, it was not going to happen!  Added a few sewing themed embellishments to finish this off.  I have a long time friend and we once sewed together at a shop, so I think I will send this off to her. 

I do hope you will join us at F&F.  Someone will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique and another design team favorite will receive a Winner's Badge.  Currently there is also a Pre-Memorial Day sale and everything is an additional 10% off the already below MSRP!

Have a fabulous week and as always, thank you for stopping by!

Love these distress colors...you have made this look like Spring captured in a tag!!! Your masking is wonderful as well!

Sometimes it is easy to 'forget' the basic techniques you learn when you start crafting as more and more complicated things take over. Love the way you have created your own masks for this as they work so well.
Thanks for jogging the old memory!
Hugs, Buttons x

Super tag, Terry. I love those new seasonal distress ink colors and how you worked the layers of masking with them. You've created such a sweet backdrop for the sewing charms too. Terrific take on the challenge!

Hugs,
Linda

Lisa said...

I did a double take. Brighter than your normal colors, but they look great together. The seasonal colors are great aren't they? I find myself challenged to use them though.

This is just beautiful! I LOVE the new Distress colors with the Tim masks you've created. I just bought the new DI from Linda's shop and did a happy dance when they arrived. Nothing better than getting some fresh Distress in the mail! Can't wait to try them thanks for the inspiration!
