Day 9 "24 Days of tags 2022" with Karen Telfer

Today is Day 9 of the "24 Days of tags 2022" challenge with Karen Telfer. The prompt is "sunshine", a reminder that not everywhere in the world has the cold wintery spell the UK is experiencing at the moment.

I used three products from Funky Fossil Designs to create this tag. I used four shades of Archival Inks to create the sunshine background:  Chrome Yellow, Buttercup, Sunflower and Tiger Lily through the Funky Fossil "Checkered Sun Stencil.

For the little bird, I used the Funky Fossil stamp set called "Christmas Characters", stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.

The sentiment, also stamped in Nocturne black ink is part of the Funky Fossil "It's Christmas" stamp set.

Finally, I added splatters using an orange and white Posca Pens and edged the tag in Versafine Clair "Summertime" orange ink.
