52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Monday 6 December 2021

Day 17 of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer.

Still playing catch up, but here is my Day 17 tag (taking part in the "24 Days of Tags 2021 challenge" with Karen Telfer. The prompt for today was "A bit of everything".  I think I've covered a few things with this tag.

For the background, I have used four shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness.

I used the Lavinia Stamps "Coral" stencil, spritzed with water and then laid on top of the tag, to achieve the bleached look. I then used a heat gun to dry the surface.

I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to stamp Lavinia Stamps "Rufus" the fox, the "Tree Branch" and one of the crows from the "Crow Set".

In the background, I used Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Magic Surrounds Us" verse stamp.

I flicked water droplets on to the tag using a fan brush and then blotted.  I then flicked diluted "Rustic Wilderness" Distress Oxide Ink on to the tag in the same way.

I used Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink and the torn edge of a piece of paper to create the landscape behind "Rufus".  I used the same ink to ink the edges of the tag, which pulls the eye in to the image itself.

I used a dark green and dark grey coloured pencil to ground Rufus.  Then added highlights to the fur, the crow and the branches using a white gelly roll pen.
