Ciao a tutti! La sfida che vi propone oggi Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog è veramente adatta a tutti! Tema STENCIL IT! Non vi potete tirare indietro! 
Anne Redfern aka Redanne è con noi anche questa settimana, vi ricordo di visitare il suo splendido blog! 

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Vacation Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to Stencil It 
There are so many fabulous stencils available right now and there are so many techniques you can use with them. It is fun to ink, spray or use embossing paste, lots of options and the end result is always a little bit unpredictable. It is a fabulous way to create your own backgrounds, or the designs can be the focus of attention. Of course you can always create your own stencils, whatever you decide to do we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!
Anne Redfern aka Redanne is still with us as a Designer Spotlight this week, I remind you to visit her wonderful blog!

Oggi sono tornata alla mia grande passione le tags! Ne ho preparate 3 usando diversi stencil di Tim Holtz. Tutte e tre le tags hanno diversi elementi in comuni: il set di timbri Mini motivation di Tim Holtz, il timbro background Circle Collage di Wendy Vecchi (da avere assolutamente!),  le Paper Dolls e le due fustelle Wildflower di Tim Holtz/Sizzix.

For this challenge I chose my great passion: tags! I have prepared 3 of them using different stencils by Tim Holtz. All three tags have several elements in common: Tim Holtz's Mini Motivation Set, Wendy Vecchi's Circle Collage (must have!), Paper Dolls and Tim Holtz / Sizzix's Wildflower dies.

Il procedimento che ho usato in una serie di brevi step!
Preparare tutti gli sfondi con i Distress ink pad tamponati sul tappetino, spruzzati con acqua  e velocemente asciugati con la Heat Tool.

The process I used in a series of short step!
First I prepared all the backgrounds. I've inked with the Distress ink pads my Non Stick Craft Sheet, sprinkled  with water and quickly dried with the Heat Tool.

Secondo step, timbrare con lo sfondo di Wendy Vecchi e passare all'interno del cerchio un pochino di Distress Paint Picket Fence che schiarisce il colore rispetto all'esterno.
Terzo step, il più importante perchè eseguito con gli stencil! Sceglete i vostri preferiti e usateli all'esterno del cerchio con DistressCrayon Picket Fence, all'interno del cerchio con Texture paste Transparent Gloss , evidenziando i contorni una volta asciutta sempre con Distress Crayon Picket Fence. Questo crea una diversità di textures ma una continuità nel design della tag.

Second step: stamp with the Wendy Vecchi's background and  inside the circle a little bit of Picket Fence  Distress Paint that lightens the color than outside.
Third step, the most important because it is executed with stencils! Choose your favorites and use them outside the circle with  Picket Fence Distress Crayon , inside the circle with Texture Paste Transparent Gloss Texture Paste, highlighting the edges  with the same Crayon. This creates a diversity of textures but a continuity in the design of your tags.

Quarto step uso dei timbri Mini Motivation. Io li ho spezzati per riempire la mia tag nei punti che desideravo, il risultato mi piace abbastanza e spero anche a voi! 
Libero sfogo alla vostra fantasia per le decorazioni, paper Dolls e fiori usati nei colori a contrasto con lo sfondo della tag. Se osservate tutte e tre le tag insieme vedrete che in ciascuna di esse sono presenti tutti e tre i colori che ho scelto!

Fourth step and last step: the use of the stamps Mini Motivation. I have broken them to fill my tag in the points that I wanted.
Your fantasy will help you in decorations, for me Paper dolls and flowers used in contrasting colors with  background. If you observe all three tags together you will see that in each of them there are all three colors I have chosen!
