Week 18 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019
The prompt for Week 18 is 'Just One Stamp".
This prompt sounds really easy, but actually I found as soon as there is a restriction on using stamps I found I wanted to use lots of them.
The background of the tag was created using Colorbox Inks brayered onto a Gelli plate and then speckled with Brusho. Once dry, I used a Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the shade of "Peacock Feathers" through a Stampers Anonymous stencil (THS003 Rays).
I stamped the Visible Image bird (part of the "Life Is Beautiful" stamp set) using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" shade of ink. I inked the edges of the tag and then mounted it onto black card. Finally, I added some Green Stickles glitter to replicate the sheen that can cometimes be seen on birds with dark feathers.
