Woodware - Layers set by Scrappy Jen of Wear Crafts

It seems ages since I last wrote on my blog. Thanks again to the lovely Kim Reygate who took my place on the Woodware DT during August so I could go away and not fret about deadlines!! As always her cards are just stunning.
So for my first week back we are using layers in our creations. I made a tag this week using layers of stencilling and stamping to build up my layers.
Here is the background :

 I blended dye inks as a base, added a little water distress then sponged through a couple of Dreamweaver stencils. I then added a bit of script and finally some scroll stamping which I embossed with Stampendous Frantage powder "Aged Aqua". I like to create my own backgrounds so that everything works together. Gone are the days when I used to search through my stash for just the right piece of background paper!!
Now for the fun bit. I just recently got this lovely Dreamweaver stencil of the cockerel weather vane and wanted to keep him quite rustic.

I then remembered I had a nice travel set of words by Stampendous that would fit the bill (if you would pardon the pun)

 A few screw brads and a little compass finish off my tag. The compass was silver so I just embossed it with gold to fit in better.
I am sure you will get loads of layering ideas this week if you check out the Woodware blog. Everyone has done something a bit different!!
See you next time for the next sketch challenge.


  1. It was my pleasure to fill in for you.
    This is just stunning by the way, I think I must make more use of my stencils, I always forget that I have them but this background is just fantastic.
