CC3C Challenge 16 Layering Stencil Embossing Technique

I meant to try and enter as many challenges as I could - think this is my second, times flies with all the other everyday things that need fitting in.

This month's challenge is based around page 50 of volume III of A Compendium of Curiosities - layering stencil embossing. This months fab prizes are a selection of goodies from Tim & Mario and also The Funkie Junkie Boutique, see here.

I've taken a large tag shape and painted the background in dark purple, I decided to follow that colour for my whole scheme. Next I created a panel using the layering stencil technique with my newest mask "measured". This is also stamped in grey using the same stamp I've used on the dress form.

Next followed a mannequin die cut which I also painted and then embossed with some gorgeous sparkly powder in a swirly pattern to give the idea of a dress. To add a touch more sparkle I've also added some silver wings.

A touch of lace and a flower finish the tag.


  1. Loving the colours Sarah! :-) xxx

  2. LOVE the position and the colors in the embossing!!! SUPER COOL!!! Painting the whole tag that color really makes it stand out! LOVE the wings too. Glad you came back to join us again! Thanks so much for playing along with us on the Layering Stencil Embossing Challenge at CC3Challenge!

  3. So pretty, Sarah! The "measured" stencil is perfect with the mannequin die cut and those wings are so sweet! I totally understand how life just takes you over and time to create is precious little. I'm so glad you found time for this challenge and hopefully we'll see more from you in the new year!

  4. Love this tag, Sarah! The layering stencil you chose goes perfectly with the mannequin die! I, too, love the colors you used ad the bling that goes with it! Thanks for joining us for this challenge! We look forward to seeing more beautiful work from you!

  5. Hi Sarah. Your layering stencil background is amazing! I really love that deep cranberry and gold-ish color together. Very striking! I really like the ruler stencil paired with the mannequin die cut. Great choice! I also love the gold embossed wings behind the mannequin. Nice job! Thanks for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  6. Love the color and the lace together! That purple is gorgeous!
