Day 8 of "24 Days of Tags 2021" with Karen Telfer

This is my Day 8 tag for the "24 Days of Tags 2021" with Karen Telfer.  I'm playing catch up as I've been away to attend a funeral, so I still have Day 9 to create yet.

I've used "Festive Berries" and "Mustard Seed" Distress Oxide Inks to create the blended background colour.

I have then lay a spritzed Lavinia Stamps "Tall Leaf Mask" wet side down onto the coloured background, mopping up any surplus water, lifting the mask then dabbing again.  I then set it aside to dry.

Once the tag was dry, I was able to commence the stamping, all done in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink. I used the Lavinia Stamps Sacred Spells stamp, in second generation stamping to create a light verse on the edges of the tag.

I then stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Zen Thistle" and the word "Dream" which is part of the Lavinia Stamps "Inspire Me" stamp set.

I coloured the thistle with a red Signo glitter pen and used a pale gold Gelly Roll pen to outline some of the flowers.  I splattered with white Posca Pen too.


  1. The background is stunning Sam,love the colours and the way you used the stencil,beautifully stamped and designed as always
