Explore your world

Hi everyone. Today I’m sharing a tag I’ve made using the Tando Creative Andy Skinner Tread Carefully stencil. There are some great Andy Skinner stencils available on the website alongside lots of other brands.

The tag began life as a simple cream tag from the Seeing Stars Letterbox Craft Box.

I blended Distress Oxides in Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo on the tag, then sprayed it with water. I dried the tag off and added a bit more colour until I was happy with the result.

I then added some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide around the edges of the tag to give a more grungy look.

I used a background stamp from my stash with black ink to add some interest to the background- I think it looks a bit like oil spills which works well in context! I then used the Walnut Stain Distress Oxide through the stencil to add the tyre treads.

I found a jeep die cut in my stash (always useful when you have army mad sons!), used inks to change the colour and added it to the tank. I finished with some Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers arranged into an inspirational quote. It was quite appropriate for this project as this was a long way out of my comfort zone- but it was fun to explore my creativity a little!

Be sure to pop back next week for some more Design Team inspiration.
