Stencilled ​​Alphabet Tag

Posted on


Hello again everyone, today I’m going to share a tag I have made using Imagine Design Creates Alphabet StencilCircles & Squares stencil and their own pre cut large white hammered card tags.

This was a quick and easy mixed media tag to make, so if you have never tried mixed media before this would be a great starting point for you. 

Shopping List 



  • I started my tag by blending the Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress inks with a blending tool. These three colours working great together as they create different colours when blended on top of each other. Once I had finished blending I flicked a little water on to the tag and moped this up with a kitchen towel. Because Distress ink is water reactive this process will leave watermarks behind, helping us to create a distressed look. 

  • I next stencilled with a blending tool and Black Soot Distress Ink through Imagine Design Creates Alphabet stencil down the right hand side of my tag. 

  • I rubbed my Dusty Concord Distress ink onto my craft mat and using a palette knife mixed some of my texture paste into the ink. If like me you craft on a budget or have little storage space for your crafting supply’s this is a great way to get texture paste of different colours, you can use Distress inks/Oxides, paint, sprays and Mica powders to name a few to do this. Using the same palette knife I applied the coloured texture paste through the lines on Imagine Design Create Circles & Squares stencil. Set this aside to dry before carrying on with the next step.

  • Using my finger I applied gold acrylic paint around the edges of my tag and rubbed a little over the texture paste areas too. 

  • I finished this tag with a black matting hand cut to size. 


You may have notice that I smudged the H on my tag, I’ll admit when I first noticed this I was really annoyed with myself then chilled and reminded myself that this tag was supposed to look distress anyway just go with it! I think that why I like this style of crafting so much, I don’t worry if I’ve ‘gone wrong’ I always seem to be able to work it in somehow. 

I’m looking forward to sharing with you again next week. Eli x
