An "Abstract" tag using Clarity Stencils

I've been away again, home just in time to do one of Eileen Godwin's challenges of create something "Abstract". 

I raided my backgrounds file and found a tag I'd made a while back using "Bundled Sage" and "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide Inks on a cream coloured tag.

I used "Peat Moss' Archival Ink through the Clarity "Abstract Droplet" stencil.

Next I used "Library Green" Archival Ink through the Clarity "Circle Dots" stencil.

Using a fine tip black pen, I drew some vertical lines, then drew some boxes on them, adding dots inbetween the boxes.  Some of the boxes I coloured with a gold shimmer gel pen, the others I filled using a black Posca Pen, edging some with a metallic gold pen.

I inked the edges of the tag using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink before mounting it on to black card.  

Finally, I added dots of black Ranger "Enamel Accents" and gold coloured Liquid Pearls.


  1. This abstract look is great Sam and I love the mix of greens with the two different stencils, and a brilliant idea to add your doodles over the top and the gold gel pen highlights work well. x

  2. Brilliant background and doodling Sam,a great masculine tag
