Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 8


 

It's Day 8 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge and this second week is all about stencils.  This is the tag that I have made for Day 8.



I've used a selection of Stampers Anonymous / Tim Holtz products over a patterned paper base

Starting with Ranger Archival Ink "Poppy" with the Tim Holtz stencil THMM101 for the hegagons at the base and the dots at the top of the tag.

The next stencil I used was the Tim Holtz THS103 'String Layering Stencil" with "Red Geranium" Ranger Archival Ink.

I then used the Tim Holtz "Shifter Layering Stencil" with "Thistle" Ranger Archival Ink for the large vertical stripes.

I then used Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Rosette" stencil.

I inked the edges of the tag using Versafine Clair "Chianti" red ink and then "Nocturne" black ink.

I used a black fine liner pen to draw around some of the circles at the top of the tag.  Then added some splatters of black Posca Pen, before mounting the tag on to a piece of dark red card,

I used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paperdolls "Witches" figures and glued into position with wet glue.  I gave the figures some colour using Derwent Inktense Pencils.  Then finished the tag adding some Tim Holtz sticky backed word stickers from the "Curiosities" set.

52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 9



The challenge for 2024 is weekly.  I will provide you with a prompt/theme each Sunday morning through out the year.  The challenge is very relaxed.  You can do as much or as little as you like.  You can create cards, tags, Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) or index cards, the choice is yours. You just go with what ever is in your head at the time.  You can stamp, get inky, use patterned papers, texture, embellish it is all down to you.

There is a dedicated private Facebook Group, with a lovely bunch of people who are already sharing their makes from previous challenges.  You can find the group by clicking this link.  I'd love you to join in.

The Crafting Niche 52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge 2024:

The prompt for Week 9 is "Patterned Papers"

*****

This is the tag that I have made for the Week 9

In my stash, I had some patterned paper pages from a Dovecraft pad called "Sweet Paris", so I decided to use them I added two to the main body of the tag and then topped and bottomed the tag with a patterned paper border.

I lay a Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "String - THS004" stencil diagonally and used "Pink Peony" Archival Ink, through the stencil.

Then on the left hand side of the tag, I positioned a Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Rosette THS092" stencil and used "Vibrant Fuchsia" Ranger Archival Ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I added some stamping using a Sizzix / Tim Holtz Alterations set called "Paris Adventure" adding a post mark and also "Paris, New York, London" address stamp.

I inked the edges of the tag using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink and then mounted the tag on to black card.

Finally, I added touches of gold and raspberry coloured gel pen to the tag.

Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 7



Here is my Day 7 make for the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  I have sprayed ink through a stencil.

On a piece of dark blue card, I sprayed "Salvaged Patina" Distress Oxide Spray Ink through the Funky Fossil "Mandala Magic" stencil.  Once dry, I realised it was quite patchy, so decided to fussy cut out the stronger coloured mandala pattern.



On a white piece of card, I used the same 'Salvaged Patina" colour, but this time a Distress Oxide Ink pad, applying the ink through the Funky Fossil "Mandala Magic" stencil.  

I cut the white card down to 4"x4" and stuck the fussy cut design on top of the white card. Then mounted it on to dark blue card to create a frame and then on to a Kraft card blank.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the sentiment, which is part of a stamp set called "Stripped Back Sentiments" by Funky Fossil Designs.

Finally, I added some sticky backed pearls to areas of the mandala, I also outlined a few areas with a gel pen.

Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 6



This is my make for Day 6 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplaychallenge.  I've used spray inks to stamp an image.

I used four shades of Distress Oxide Sprays:  Salvaged Patina, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Twisted Citreon to stamp (using a Misti) the bird image,  which is part of the Visible Image "Life is beautiful" stamp set.



Once dry, I used "Shaded Lilac" Distress Oxide Ink through the Visible Image "Strobes" stencil.  I inked the edges with the same ink and then used Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink to ink the edges again.

The sentiments is part of the same stamp set and stamped again in Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.

Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 5



This is my Day 5 make of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge.  Today I have used Distress Oxide Spray Ink with a mask.

I decided to used "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink on a dark blue coloured card.  I positioned the Funky Fossil Designs "Bubble Mask" over the top of the card, then lightly spritzed the ink over the top.



Once dry, I cut the card to size and mounted on to dark blue card and then on to a white card blank.

I used Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink to stamp the greeting, using the Funky Fossil Designs "Stripped Back Sentiment" stamp set, stamped on to white card.  I trimmed the sentiment to size and then stuck it to the centre of the card using foam pads so that it was elevated.

Finally, I added a few dots of Ranger White Enamel Accents to break up the darker colour.

Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 4



This is my Day 4 make of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge.  Today, I have stamped with spray inks.

I used the large snowflake stamp from the Visible Image "Let It Snow" stamp set for the central image.

Using my Misti, I spritzed the stamp with "Salvaged Patina" Distress Oxide Ink and stamped the snowflake.  




I wiped down the Misti, keeping the stamp in the same position and then spritzed the stamp with "Mermaid Lagoon" Distress Oxide Spray Ink and stamped the snowflake over again. I repeated the process with "Twisted Citreon" Distress Oxide Spray Ink.

I found the whole spritzing on to the Misti a bit of a messy process and quite wasteful of ink, but you have to try different things don't you!

On a small scrap of white card, using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the Simon Says Stamp "Season's Greetings" which is part of their "Tiny Words - Christmas" stamp set.  I trimmed the sentiment and added it to the centre of the snowflake.

I mounted the snowflake on to a piece of dark blue card and then on to a kraft card blank.  Finally, adding some clear gems and some dots of "Crystal" Stickles glue for sparkle.

Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 3



It's Day 3 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge 2024,with a theme of spray paints.

This is my take.  I've used a white piece of card and graduated three colours of Dylusion spray paint to cover the surface.  The colours that I have used are:  Lemon Zest, Cut Grass and London Blue.  Once dry, I cut the card down to a tag shape.



To decorate the tag, I have used a selection of Lavinia Stamps, starting with the "Tree Branch" and one of the owls from the "Echo & Drew" stamp set.  I then stamped the "Vine Branch" and one of the hares from the "Whimsical Hares" stamp set, all in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink with a Lavinia "Hill Mask" I created the landscape behind the hare.  I used the same ink to stamp the Lavinia "Small Branch".

In the foreground, I have used Posca Pens to give the impression of flowers in the grass and a white gel pen for highlights on the owl and the hare.  Finally, adding a Lavinia "Sentiment Sticker".
