Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stencil Fun Tag using Dina Wakley's New Paints: Sapphire, Malachite, Mustard and Raspberry

Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!  This week's theme is "stencil fun" and we are featuring products from Stamperia. 

I started this project on a piece of Distress Kraft Heavystock that I cut into a tag shape using the Sizzix Tag Collection dies and my Sizzix Big Shot.  I painted some of the background white, then stenciled over it in teals, yellows and greens using Stamperia's Voyages Fantastiques Mixed Pattern Stencil.

Since I was in stencil mode, I grabbed StencilGirl's Shape Collection stencil and added some pointed-end oval shapes up the side.  I also tried out some of Dina Wakley's new paint colors (what a great day!) in Malachite and Sapphire.

I wanted to add more color, so I threw on some purple and pink tones.  Then I cut out a frame shape and used Tim Hotz's Gradient Dots stencil to make some pink and orange dots (using Dina's new Raspberry and Mustard paint).  I also cut some scallop shapes out of Simple Stories' Life in Bloom patterned paper.

It was time to assemble!  I glued my layers on and then added a sentiment in the middle that I stamped with Seth Apter's ESA 34 stamp.  I also added some background patterns from that same stamp set.  It is so versatile!  I added just a touch more yellow and then as the final step, I drew on some dimensional dots using Stamperia's White Contour liner.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
