Tag Along

Working my way through more of the techniques from 
Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 102.

These two tags use a background of
 Distress Paint stamped images

that then provide a resist for layers of ink and stenciling.

These use a technique of stenciling,
then stamping through the stencil,

before adding more ink and a focal point stamp.

The last one uses a stencil to monoprint on the tag by
 inking the back of the stencil and spraying with water before
placing and rubbing the stencil on the tag.
Above, before adding focal stamps,

and here, after.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Paints and Inks
and Layering Stencils, and Mary Beth Shaw's Web stencil.
