I started with a preprinted rose tag from Prima and used a plastic knife to scoop out the embossing paste and to push it through the stencil. The knife had ridges but I loved the texture so much, I left the ridges in the stars. You can see the ridges in this picture.
Then I used my Borders stencil for the large circles on the bottom left of the tag and spread the embossing paste left on the knife to make some ridged silver areas on the tag. I added some Glitz washi tape and a silver glittery one that doesn’t leave glitter bits around.
For the final touch, I made a felt rose by cutting a spiral into a pink felt circle and then rolling the felt from the outside in and added grey felt leaves. You can see a tutorial on felt roses on my blog here. I used glue dots to secure the flower to the tag.
Hope you try out some stencils soon but be prepared to get caught up in trying different materials and ideas. I used up a whole afternoon playing with my Hero Arts stencils!
