Have you used your masks and stencils lately? Seems like they're all the rage lately. Over on the Inspiration Emporium blog they've issued a challenge for them. One lucky winner will be randomly chosen from all the entries to win a $50 gift certificate to the store. Are you in? I am...
At the top of the tag I've used a Studio 490 stencil with translucent embossing paste mixed with a drop or 2 of Peeled Paint reinker. I tapped the paste with my palette knife while the stencil was still in place. The added dimension makes for interesting texture. Tim's alpha masks spell out the word 'leaf'. You can barely see The Crafters Workshop leaf stencil (pinkish-red) all around the word.
