52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Sunday 20 December 2020

Day 20 - Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags" challenge.

This is my Day 20 tag. Today the prompt was using acrylic paint on a gel plate and take a patterned impression. 

I used Paperartsy Opaque Chalk Acrylics and made several backgrounds for future use.  Some using a stencil, some with bubble wrap. 

For this tag, I used two shades of paint Cribbean Sea and Elephant, applied to the gel plate with a brayer.

I lay Funky Fossil "Snow Flurry" stencil over the top of the gel plate and applied a little pressure.  I then lifted the stencil swapping it for a piece of white card, smoothing the card over the gel plate, applying a little pressure.  I then lifted the card, resulting in the tag on the top right hand side in the photo above. I washed the stencil, gel plate and brayer immediately before the paint was fully dry.

Using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the snowflakes.

I used an anti-static bag across the surface of the tag then stamped the "Fa La La" sentiment (part of the Funky Fossil stampe set by the same name), in Wow! clear embossing powder.

I then covered the stamped area with Wow! Metallic Gold Super Fine embossing powder and heat set.

Using a metallic gold pen, I added an edged border to the tag and little highlights to the snowflakes.
