Week 21 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019
The prompt for Week 21 is "Anniversary". I've chosen this as it is the week of my 34th wedding anniversary. It sounds such a long time, but it has absolutely flown.
For my tag, I started by stamping the Stampin' Up ladybirds (Love You Lots set) in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink. I then stamped sentiment, which is by Lavinia Stamps (We may not have it all), and the Stampin' Up "Love You Lots" and the Stamper's Anonymous mini border below the love you lots (Ornate Trims) in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" ink.
I then used a Distress Ink in the shade of "Victorian Velvet" through an Andy Skinner stencil called "Tornado". I punched a little heart and coloured it in, along with the Lady Birds using a red "Sparkle" Signo Pen.
Finally, I inked the edges of the tag using a couple of Distress Inks.

There is also a Facebook Group where you can upload your creations to the weekly albums and chat to others who are taking part. It is a very relaxed challenge, you just do what you can, when you can. Hope you will pop over and say hello. The more the merrier. Sam x

Thank you Meg. Nothing much planned as Hubby is working, but I'm sure we'll do something to celebrate when he is off work xDelete
Hi Sam, you are an amazing artist! I’m not sure I understand blogs. For instance, do other people post on the tag challenge or do you just show your work? I learn so much from you!ReplyDelete
