52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Sunday 19 November 2023

Day 6 of Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge.

I'm playing catch up again after being away for a few days.  This is my Day 6 tag for the Karen Telfer's "24 Days of Tags 2023" challenge with a brief of "gel plate" background.

Rather than just make one background, I made half a dozen as they're always handy to have in my stash for later use. Above are the six backgrounds I made.

I used Paperartsy chalk paints on my gel plate and a fern and an olive branch picked from the garden for the foliage pattern.  In the background I have used the Lavinia Stamps "Cryptic" stencil, then taken a press.

I used a Sweet Poppy Stencils sentiment from their "Festive Phrases" stamp set, stamped in Wow! Bright White embossing powder and heat set.

I mounted the tag on to a white background and then went around the edge of the tag and some foliage using a silver glitter gel pen.


  1. Beautiful base tags and a fabulous decorated one

  2. I love the botanical look to all the different tags done so brilliant on the gelli plate Sam, and the finished tag is really pretty with the added stencil detail, and the white embossed sentiment stands out so well. x
