52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge - Week 17

This is a weekly challenge. I 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 17 is "Use your initials"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 17.

I started by painting my tag with two shades of Distress Paint, using a mix of "Villainous Potion" and "Prize Ribbon" shades.  I set the tag aside to dry and then flattened it between a couple of books as it was curling.

I used assorted acrylic paints to paint the three main flowers and foliage in a folk art style.

I then die cut my initials "SCS" and glued into position.  

I filled in the background area by using Posca Pens to create smaller flowers, using pale blue, yellow, orange and white pens.
