DEAR FRIENDS,  we are on round two, in this months CHALLENGE :
Here is my panel this Wednesday .  
I hope you would like to play with us, and maybe win a price .       

It is a tag ,onto which I first stenciled , using the Abstract Grid, around
the perimeter , dabbing with Buttercup paint.
I found two old lace scratches, lying around , and placed them one under the other.
Then I stenciled the leaves using Texture Paste , and partly covering
the old lace. 

When dry one of the beautiful roses from the rose stencil, was
also added using Texture Paste, and on the bottom the grid stencils was
used again ,with texture paste, too.
After all dried ,I mixed Flat Matte spray Rose, with diluted Chestnut Brown,
onto my craftmat- and with lots of water added it to the panel ,very carefully, 
not to cover the grid.

Also I draw lines, around roses and leaves to give more attention to them,
using a gold brown aquaralle pencil,- and leaves were dabbed with Butternut and white 
paint here and there.
Onto scratch of old book paper, I stamped one of the new Affirmations
created by Lynne .
Lastly another piece of the old lace was attached to the tag hole on top.

I adore this technique Dorthe, the paste over the lace giving extra texture to those stencilled layers. Beautiful mix of colours and a combination I have not tried yet, Thank you for the suggestion. Romantic yet again on the sweetest of tags. Thank you for sharing.

Such a beautiful tag Dorthe. The soft colours are gorgeous and love all the texture and little details on there. Outlining the stencilled rose and leaves really makes them pop.
