Using Gesso With A Stencil

We've had some beautiful days in my part of the USA.

I used Gesso with the Tim Holtz-Dot Fade stencil to make this top-folding TAG-CARD.
(I really enjoy making Tag-Cards.)
It was difficult to photograph the shimmer on the sunflower & the "Sunshine" in the sentiment.

I'm playing along with the following challenges:

Stamps:  (PTI)-Simple Sunflower
Dies:  (PTI)-Tag Sale #7, Simple Sunflower, Rickrack Border; (Spellbinders)-Labels Trio
Stencil:  (TH)-Dot Fade
Ink:  VersaMark, Distress Inks, Archival Ink
Other:  Gesso, Clear Embossing Powder, Gelly Roll Pen, Hemp Cord, Twill Tape, Foam Tape

Thanks for your visit.

Martha, this is one of my all time faves of yours! Such a beautiful tag-card! Love your design and awesome use of the stencil! Gorgeous work!

You creat the most beautiful tags I know. You are the tag making queen.

This one is the prettiest I´ve seen in a very long time. Love the colors with the awesome details.

Where is that tag and border die from, really pretty?

You asked me about the houses on my blog. YES I made them myself. With help from my husband. If you want one I can make one for you?

Wishing you a Happy Easter.

Hugs for you/Gunilla
