Quiet Garden

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a good Labor Day weekend. I want to show you a tag I made using alcohol inks, a stencil and some acetate.

I used glossy card stock, put various purple and blue alcohol inks along with silver on my craft mat. I swiped the card stock through the ink for my background. I laid the leaf stencil over the background and used translucent stencil paste. After it dried I outlined the leaves with a white marker.

It was fun using my new dragonfly stamp from Our Daily Bread. The dragonflies were stamped on acetate and glittered on the back of the wings. I fussy cut them to add to the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
