52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Monday 6 December 2021

Day 16 of the "24 Days of Tags Challenge 2021" with Karen Telfer

I'm playing catch up with my tags, as I've been away in the caravan this weekend, so this is the first of three that I need to make to be back on track. 

I've used four shades of Distress Oxide Inks for the background:  Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Abandoned Coral and Festive Berries.

I spritzed the surface of a Lavinia Stamps stencil called "Foliage" with water, then lay it wet side down, over the tag.  I used a kitchen towel to absorb any surplus water then lifted the stencil, which reveals a bleached look image of the stencil. I then used a heat gun to dry the surface.

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment, by Lavinia Stamps, called "Heartfelt Verse" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I used the same ink to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Wild Vines" too.

Next, I stamped the hanging hearts, which are part of the Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Charms" stamp set, using Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink.  I then added small white dots on the surface of the background and highlighting areas on the hanging hearts.
