Pam Carriker Stencil Hop

Step by step tag using Pam Carriker's color wheel stencil, rubber stamps, and a butterfly punch by Carolyn Dube http://stencilgirlproducts.com/stencils-6x6/view/828


I like color.  I know you are shocked since it is such a well kept secret that I like color….Well today I am playing in the stencil hop with Pam Carriker’s Primary, Secondary, Tertiary color wheel stencil for StencilGirl Products.

I started with a tag by gluing on some old writing and then randomly rubber stamping.

I added color with acrylic paint and Pam’s stencil, Primary, Secondary, Tertiary color wheel.  I am so glad this hop fell on a Friday so I could share this with my friends at Paint Party Friday!

Since I love the entire rainbow there had to be more color on this tag. In came the green and yellow acrylic paint.

I had some butterflies left over from another project (yesterday’s in fact) and what is on my counter is often exactly what I need.  A parade of colorful butterflies just made me happy!

This cried out for text but I “had nothing to say” so an old book to the rescue.  I searched around in the book for phrases that felt interesting. The 2 phrases, “tell me your wish” and “I could use my secret powers” worked so well together.  But I needed 2 words – of color.  Guess what- it is pretty tedious to actually look in a book for an exact word.  So I built color instead of looking for it forever…

    Great fun and love the color as you know…..is this a regular tag or a giant tag – it looks really big….something to hang in the studio to inspire you to use your secret powers early and often. xox

    • Carolyn September 27, 2013, 8:10 am

      It’s a big one- but not jumbo big- can’t remember the actual office supply store name of this size of tag. I do have some tags that are literally the size of a piece of copy paper….
