Week 35 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2019 (Crafty Individuals CI-265)
The challenge prompt for Week 35 is "Birds".
For my tag, I started off with a gelli plate background I had prepared a few weeks ago, using Colorbox Inks brayered on to the gelli plate and then sprinkled with wet Brusho, which creates the mottled look.
Using a Crafter's Companion script stamp I stamped across the tag using Versafine "Smokey Gray" coloured ink.
On a separate piece of card in the same gelli-plate colours I stamped the Crafty Individuals CI-265 in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" shade of ink. I then cut the stamped image into three. Using the same ink, I stamped the ferns, which are part of a Crafty Individuals set (CI-207).
The mini dragonflies are from the same set, but I stamped them in Versafine Clair "Twilight". I also inked the edges of the tag in "Twilight" and the edges of the stamped bird images too.
I mixed some Distress Oxide ink (Brushed Corduroy and Wild Honey) with some water, then added some Brusho SprinkleIT. I mixed them together, then using a fan brush splattered across the tag. This gives a subtle coloured sparkly look.
Using double sided sticky tape, I adhered the bird sections onto the tag. I gave the birds some additional colour by painting Distress Oxide in shades of "Brushed Corduroy", adding white around the eyes and highlight areas using a white Signo pen.
