Week 6 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019
The prompt for Week 6 is "Wild Animals".
For my tag, I decided to go for more of an African theme of wild animals. I started by making a coloured background of Distress Oxide Ink in Fossilised Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Spiced Marmalade.
Using an animal print stencil by Sweet Poppy, I coloured in the central panel of the tag using a Distress Ink in "Rusty Hinge" colour. Using a striped animal print stencil, also by Sweet Poppy, I masked off the middle area and coloured in the stripes using a Distress ink in the shade of "Ground Espresso". I then inked the edges of the tag in both dark red and black ink.
I stamped the sentiment (Darkroom Door Wild Africa Vol 1 stamp set) in Versafine "Black Onyx" ink. I then stamped the trees and the giraffe images in the same ink, these are part of a Darkroom Door Set called "African Trees".
