Day 21 of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer.



This is my Day 21 tag, part of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer. 

I used a Funky Fossil stamp set called "Fa La La" stamp set for the central sentiment, heat embossed using Wow! Rich Gold" embossing powder.

In the background I used two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry with the Funky Fossil "Holly Background Stencil".

Using Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink, I stamped areas of the Funky Fossil A7 "Face the music" stamp.

I splattered gold and black paint across the surface and drew a wavy black line around the edge of the tag using a thin pointed black pen. 

Day 19 of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer.


 

For the Day 19 tag, Karen asked us to use something we had not used before.

Earlier in the year,  I had purchased the "Christmas Eve" Visible Image stamp set in their sale, so this seemed to be the ideal time to break open the packet.

I stamped the images in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, using first and second generation stamping.

I created the background using several shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Villainous Potion.

I used a white gelly roll pen to add highlights to the Christmas trees and then used Paperartsy "Snowflake" white acrylic chalk paint to create the falling snow.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment, which was from a Woodware stamp set in "Nocturne" black ink.

Day 20 of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer



This is my Day 20 Tag, somehow I have realised I've skipped Day 19, so I'll do that tomorrow. 

I've used Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Inks swooshed, dried and then more swooshing to get a more intense colour.  I've then used the same inks through the Funky Fossil "Organic Circles" stencil.  

I used a metallic gold paint on the edge of the tag and also splattered across the surface.  I then splattered the paint from a white and a black Posca Pens.

Using Wow! clear embossing ink I stamped the rose from the Visible Image "Forever Love" stamp set on the bottom corner of the tag, then coated the area with Wow! Rich Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.  I then repeated the process by stamping on white card.  I painted the rose in "Festive Berries" Distress Oxide Ink and then cut around it and adhered onto the tag.

Day 18 of the "24 Days of tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer


 

Yey, I've managed to get up to date, this is my Day 18 tag. I've used a Funky Fossil Designs "Snow is falling" stencil with Distress Oxide Inks (Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Villainous Potion).

I used the Funky Fossil "Elegant Ornaments" stamp set for the Christmas ornament and the sentiment, stamped in Wow! clear embossing ink and coated with Wow! Super fine metallic silver embossing powder and heat set.

I coloured the ornament using "Villainous Potion" Distress Oxide inks, applied with a paint brush.


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.

Day 16 of the "24 Days of Tags Challenge 2021" with Karen Telfer



I'm playing catch up with my tags, as I've been away in the caravan this weekend, so this is the first of three that I need to make to be back on track. 

I've used four shades of Distress Oxide Inks for the background:  Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Abandoned Coral and Festive Berries.

I spritzed the surface of a Lavinia Stamps stencil called "Foliage" with water, then lay it wet side down, over the tag.  I used a kitchen towel to absorb any surplus water then lifted the stencil, which reveals a bleached look image of the stencil. I then used a heat gun to dry the surface.

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment, by Lavinia Stamps, called "Heartfelt Verse" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I used the same ink to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Wild Vines" too.

Next, I stamped the hanging hearts, which are part of the Lavinia Stamps "Fairy Charms" stamp set, using Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink.  I then added small white dots on the surface of the background and highlighting areas on the hanging hearts.

Day 15 of "24 Days of Tags 2021" with Karen Telfer



This is my Day 15 tag, part of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer.  Today the prompt was "Circles".

I've used the Lavinia Stamps "White Orbs" stencil in the background with "Tumbled Glass" and "Peacock Feathers" Distress Oxide Inks.  Using a couple of plastic caps I had on my desk, I dipped them in "Mermaid Lagoon" Distress Oxide Ink to create the layered circles.

I used the same three shades of Distress Oxide Inks to create the circles.  Stamped with Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" and heat embossed with Wow! Clear Embossing Powders.  I used the Lavinia Stamps "Mini Holly Stamp", a Crafters Companion "Script Stamp" and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment from their "Tiny Words - Christmas" stamp set.  A couple of the discs were elevated by die cutting funky foam to the same size as the disc, to give a 3D look,
