Day 10 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" Challenge

Here's the tag I made for Day 10 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge.  It had a theme of "Bold & Bright" and I think I hit the brief!

Starting with a white tag, I used several colours of Distress Oxide Ink to cover the surface of the tag.  The shades I used were:  Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet.

I then used the same colours through a selection of Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stencils.  The stencils I used are:  Chevron Shifter Layering Stencil, String Layering Stencil, THMM104 stencil, Dot Fade Layering Stencil and the Sparkle Layering Stencil.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped flowers and leaves from Hobby Art Ltd "Abstract Flowers CS175D" stamp set on to white card.  

I coloured the middle of the flowers with two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade, giving the colour a coat of "A Wink of Stella" to add a lovely golden shimmer.  I then fussy cut the flowers and leaves and glued them into position on the tag.
