Week 4 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2018

The prompt for Week 4 is "Home".  I thought this would be quite a versatile prompt that can be interpreted in several ways.

Just a reminder, that anybody can take part in this challenge.  There is an active Facebook group where you can upload your tag/card and talk to other members who are taking part.  There is no pressure, you do what you can, when you can.  I usually post the weekly prompts on a Sunday afternoon/evening or a Monday morning, it depends what I am up to.  The previous prompts can be found by clicking on the button to the right hand side of the "home" button, just below the title of the blog.

For this week, I have made two samples on the theme of "Home".

For the top tag with the houses, I started by using a chevron stencil and Tim Holtz Distress inks in shades of "Spun Sugar" and "Victorian Velvet" to give the pink shades.  I then cut out a section of patterned papers with houses on and coloured  the central house in pink.  I cut the edges staggered to add interest to the tag.  Using my Brother P-touch gadget, I printed out "Our House In The Middle of Our Street" in four sections and stuck it down.  I die cut the arrow and coloured it with a Promarker and adhered it pointing to the central pink house.  I added a dotted edge to the tag using a black pen and some sticky adhesive gems to add some interest to the plain chevron area.

For the second tag with the tree.  I started by using two Distress inks with a moist paintbrush and created the blue background.  I drew the tree on a piece of brown cardstock and then coloured it with Promarkers before positioning and sticking to the tag.  For the nest and birds, I used stamps that came free with a magazine.  I stamped onto white card and again coloured with Promarkers and then cut them out.
