Week 5 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019

The prompt for Week 5  is "Geometric Shapes".

For my tag, I started by making a background of three shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass.  Once dry, using a Visible Image stencil called "Two Tone" I covered the service with dots of Twisted Citron Distress Ink.

Using a Versafine Clair ink pad called "Paradise", I stamped concentric circles from the Visible Image "Shape It Up" stamp set across the surface of the tag.

In Versafine "Stormy Grey" ink, I stamped three images of artist supplies, using IndigoBlu sets: Collector's Edition no.17,18 and 20 (Pencils, Brushes and Paint Tubes.  Which I then die cut into circle shapes. I also die cut different blue cardstock in different size circles.

Returning to the stamped, circle images, I coloured them using Distress Inks, using a silver Signo Pen on some areas too.

I arranged the blue discs and the stamped images into a pleasing arrangement and stuck them into position.  Some are flat, others are elevated on foam pads.  To finish, I lightly inked the edges of the tag.
