Week 1 - 52 Week Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019

Hello and welcome to a brand new year of the 52 Week Art Card / Tag Challenge for 2019.

For those of you new to this challenge, you will find all the info you need here.  

There is a Facebook Group for this challenge, where you are more than welcome to join, chat with others taking part and upload images of your creations to the weekly albums. This is a very relaxed challenge for all abilities.

So now down to business.

The prompt for Week 1 is "Celebrations"

We celebrate many things, birthdays, an anniversary, Christmas, new babiesm passing a test and so on.  I've based my tag on new year, but you can of course chose any form of celebration.

I started my tag by making the background using various shades of Distress Oxide inks.  I used a Stampin' Up stamp for the "Celebrate" sentiment.

Using a round punch and an old dictionary I have had since school, I punched circles of text and stuck them on top of the Oxide background.  I then ran the whole thing through the Big Shot in an embossing folder with concentric circles. I then inked the edges of the tag with a grey and black ink.

I die cut the numbers and coloured them with Versafine Clair ink in a shade of "Blue Belle".  Using a silver glitter Signo pen, I added dots onto the blue numbers. Then stuck the numbers to the tag.

Finally I mounted the tag onto a dark blue card and added sequins across the surface of the tag.
