Week 7 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2018

Just a reminder that anybody can take part in this challenge.  There is an active Facebook group where you can upload your tag/card and chat to other members about the challenge and other craft related things.

There is absolutely no pressure with this challenge, you do what you can, when you can.  I usually upload the prompt for the coming week on the Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.


The prompt for Week 7 is "Romance".

The shops seem to be in Valentine's meltdown, so it seems kind of right to make this the prompt for this week.

I started with a plain manilla coloured tag and inked the edges in shades of brown, red and black to create an aged/distress look.

I rummaged through my scrap patterned paper off cut box and found a three pieces which co-ordinated well.  From memory, I think they are part of the Dovecraft "Sweet Paris" collection. One was a narrow strip and the other two rough rectangles, so I went with what I had and positioned them, using one piece to cut out areas and layer to create a more 3D look.  I then inked the edges of the patterned papers and stamped sentiments and franking mark.
