52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Wednesday 8 December 2021

Day 19 of the "24 Days of Tags 2021" challenge with Karen Telfer.


For the Day 19 tag, Karen asked us to use something we had not used before.

Earlier in the year,  I had purchased the "Christmas Eve" Visible Image stamp set in their sale, so this seemed to be the ideal time to break open the packet.

I stamped the images in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, using first and second generation stamping.

I created the background using several shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Villainous Potion.

I used a white gelly roll pen to add highlights to the Christmas trees and then used Paperartsy "Snowflake" white acrylic chalk paint to create the falling snow.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment, which was from a Woodware stamp set in "Nocturne" black ink.
