Mother's Day Stenciled Background Tag

This is the results of the first spray for my Mother's Day card! 

Happy Mother's Day! 
This is what I made for my mother this afternoon. It's going out in the mail tomorrow. 
This is the first tag, the second tag went darker in color. I'll share how both were made. 
Hold one of Tim's stencils up a couple of inches and then spray with lighter color on one tag or card, flipped it over while still wet and added color to another tag. Keep spraying until you cover about 50% of tag or card with lighter color, clean and dry stencil. With darker spray, following the same procedure to cover both tags.
Oh, I forgot, rotate the same stencil with every spray. You will get "a one of a kind" look from one stencil using this technique. 

Prima 6" designer paper was used under quote, trim on top, dress, shoes and headband. Flowers were cut with white card stock and then colored with spray inks. Archival black ink was used to ink quote, dress, doll image. Embellishment were used from my stash of supplies.
