March Tag with Clear Scraps!

Hi, Connie here with my Clear Scraps tag for March.   I used 6" stencils,
by Clear Scraps, to create a mixed media tag.

#1. Paint the tag with acrylic paint. Let dry. Create a background, for the tag, using 2 or 3 colors of acrylic paint. A Gel Printing Plate is fun to use.
#2. After the tag background is dry, start adding stenciled images. Clear Scraps has awesome designs for this. Go crazy!!
#3. When I was happy with the background, the ribbon was tied on and the Mirror Butterfly was painted with acrylic paint.
#4. Stencil the Butterfly and attach to the tag. Add embellishments behind the Butterfly if you like.
