52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Week 5 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2018

It's Sunday again, so time to get the thinking caps on for the coming week.

The prompt for Week 5 is "Silhouette".  I think this prompt should allow you to create in lots of different directions.  I sat down for an afternoon and created these four tags as examples. Each one fills the brief but is quite different too.

All four tags have a bakground of Tim Holts Distress Inks and Oxide Inks. I've used a white Signo pen on three of the tags.

For this tag I used a floral stamp from a Stamper's Anonymous set.  I filled the background with a Creative Expression stamp called "Hexagon Script".

For this "Full Moon" tag, I used a mask with a circle to create the moon, shading it with Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Ink in "White Clouds" shade.  The tree is part of a Stampin' Up set called "Sheltering Tree".  I used a Brother label maker for the "full moon" text.

For this cat tag, I used Distress Oxides on a page from an old hymn book.  I used a Penny Black stamp called "Skyward".  The cat was cut using a Poppy Stamps die called "Large Sitting Cat".

Finally, I used stamps which I don't recall the name of for this Winter Birds tag.  A mix of Distress and Oxides were used for the background and the edges were inked heavily.

I hope you have a great week.  Sam x


Just as a reminder, anybody can take part in this challenge.  There is an active Facebook Group where you can upload your tag/card and chat to other members about the challenge.

There is no pressure, you do what you can, when you can.  I usually post the prompt for the next week on a Sunday afternoon/evening or a Monday morning.
