Stencil It... SDC 93

It's the amazing Jane's  turn to host the challenge this week at Stampotique and she has chosen stencils.
Hello!  Happy to be hosting this weeks' challenge at the Stampotique Dt challenge blog!  I have an incredible love for stencils like a lot of creative bloggers do these days!  I also think the images from Stampotique look awesome stamped over a stenciled back ground.  So, for this weeks' challenge I am asking you to pull out one of your favorite stencils and use it on your creation with a Stampotique image.
I can not wait to see what you create!

I love stencils, so I had great fun playing along with this one. As you can see it's nestling in yet more snow :-)

First of all I made my tag. When I first saw Jo's amazing Flamingo stamp I knew I wanted it on a metal background, and now was my chance. The Ten Second Studio metals have been stuck to the tag then embossed and sanded.
Flamingo has been paper pieced, and Stella has been coloured with Prisma pencils. This is a huge stamp, it covers the Timmy sized tag, and it's really easy to cut out - no flamingo's were harmed in the making of this tag :-)
My background is a paper mache hanger, and it's been painted in Fresco paints. The stencil has been 'bumped' in the corners. I've overstamped with my trusty Vintage Script, and added Row of Numbers to the edges. One day when I'm a grown up I'll be able to stamp straight - how boring will that be!
I really enjoyed this, so please join in, dig out your stencils and get messy. Remember you don't need to use Stampotiqe stamps, but we love it when you do - there's also the chance to win a $30 gift certificate.
Thanks very much for looking xx


  1. You wanna learn to stamp straight? Nope, it's overrated if you ask me! Lovely tag, love the colours! Valerie

  2. Great fun !! I love your metal tag and this flamingo (I envy you having it !!), and your background in paper mache looks really PERFECT with it... Fabulous ! Coco xx

  3. Fantastic! The colours are so beautiful and the flamingo image would bring a smile to anyone

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. This is a wonderful tag Sue. I'm with the previous lady, stamping straight is very over rated. Wishing you a lovely Easter weekend xx

  5. really an amazing creation Sue! One of my favs of your 4 sure!

  6. Super fab tag Sue, love the metal, not really sure how you did it with all those coloured panels, but it sure looks good.

    Stamping straight, what you on with!! Why on earth would you wanna do that, if you did that then you'd have to get your bumping perfect and that's not gonna happen now is it!!!
