52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge - Week 8

The challenge for 2024 is weekly.  I will provide you with a prompt/theme each Sunday morning through out the year.  The challenge is very relaxed.  You can do as much or as little as you like.  You can create cards, tags, Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) or index cards, the choice is yours. You just go with what ever is in your head at the time.  You can stamp, get inky, use patterned papers, texture, embellish it is all down to you.

There is a dedicated private Facebook Group, with a lovely bunch of people who are already sharing their makes from previous challenges.  You can find the group by clicking this link.  I'd love you to join in.

The Crafting Niche 52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge 2024:

The prompt for Week 8 is "Song Titles"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 8.

The song I have chosen is one from my teens "Going Underground" by The Jam.

I sourced a map of the London Underground on-line, reduced it in size, then printed it out and stuck it to a blank tag using glue tape.  I then inked the edges of the tag using Versafine Clair "Tulip Red" ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the arrows using a Sweet Dixie "Follow your dreams SDCSA6039" arrow stamp.

I then mounted the tag on to a piece of red card.

I dug out my old-school Dymo tape maker thing (no idea what it's called these days, it's one of those old clicky things) and printed the word "Underground" on a black background, sticking it towards the bottom of the tag.

I used a small arrow shaped die I had sourced on Amazon and die cut three arrow shapes in red card.

Next, I printed out the word "Going" on the computer and cut it to size, sticking it on to the red arrows.  I then used more wet glue to stick the red arrows in to position.


  1. What a great idea Sam using the map of the underground as the base for the tag, and the red and black arrows, and your song title on the red arrows and the Dymo tape is a brilliant idea. x
