Day 16 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge


It's Day 16 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge.  Today the tag has a theme of "Splashes of Colour".  For my tag I've used a stamp set and stencil from Funky Fossil Designs.

I started by stamping the paint brush and tube of paint, both are part of the Funky Fossil Designs stamp set called "Artsy" which I think may now be retired.  I used Versafine Clair "Morning Mist".

I coated the stamped image in "Pebeo" Drawing Gum / Masking Fluid and set aside for a few minutes to dry.

Once dry, I lay the Funky Fossil Designs "Splatters" over the tag and made various coloured splatters over the tag using Distress Oxide Inks.  The colours that I used are:

  • Salvaged Patina
  • Cracked Pistachio
  • Mermaid Lagoon 
  • Wilted Violet
I then went around the edge of the tag with "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink.

Once dry, I used the Frisk "Maskaway" eraser to rub off the masking fluid from the paint brush and tube image.

I used Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the paint brush and paint tube, also using a metalic silver gel pen in places too.

Next, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the sentiment on the paint tube.  The sentiment is also part of the Funky Fossil "Artsy" stamp set.  Finally, I mounted the tag on a piece of dark blue card.


  1. Perfect combination of splatters and stamped images

  2. More bright colours used here for the Splatters stencilled background, and then the stamped brush and paint tube work brilliantly over the top, and some great words on the paint tube. x

  3. Cleverly made and most gorgeously designed tag x
