I decided to use Embossing with Stencils and Stamping for my tag, and followed the instructions as given in the Day 2 class notes.
I used the Honeycomb layering stencil to emboss a scrap of Co-ordinations card stock, and used sand paper to bring out the details when I made my sample tag for Day 2 of Creative Chemistry 102. I had some of that embossed card left-over and so I recycled it!.
I then created a background on a #8 manila tag using Pumice Stain Distress Stain. I used a blending tool loaded with watered down “Barn Door” Distress Paint through the same Honeycomb stencil onto that background. Then, after taping the stencil down securely, I stamped in Archival “Jet Black” through the stencil.
I matched the honeycomb pattern on the embossed card with the stenciled pattern on the tag, taped the card down and trimmed it to fit. I added some honeybee images to the embossed card using Archival “Jet Black”, a Snowman extra fine gold paint marker and a Pigma Micron 05 black pen to get this tag:
- Stamps: Stamping’ Up! “Bugs and Slugs”; Serendipity Stamps 465G

- Inks: Archival ‘Jet Black”; Distress Stain “Pumice Stone”; Distress Paint “Barn Door”; Pigma Micron 05 “black”; Snowman extra fine “Gold”
