Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 1

I recently came across a challenge by one of the people I follow on Instagram.  It's organised by Tiffany Johnson Creative, you can find her on both Instagram and Facebook.  The challenge is to create to prompts for one hundred days and the challenge starts today, the 18th February 2024. I decided I would try to keep up with the challenge, so requested a list of the prompts.

This is my Day 1 art play.  I used three shades of Distress Oxide Spray Inks to create the background, using Salvaged Patina, Squeezed Lemonade and Saltwater Taffy coloured spray inks.  I spritzed the inky surface allowing the colours to merge and then lay a piece of white card over the top, this gave me two mirror image backgrounds instead of one.

Once dry, I used one of the backgrounds to make the card at the top of this post. I used the Lavinia Stamps "Dynamic Stencil" with "Salvaged Patina" and Saltwater Taffy" Distress Oxide inks to create the pattern.

In the middle of the card, I stamped the Waffle Flower "Thinking of you" greeting, which is part of their "Essential Sentiments" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink.

I used the same ink to edge the card and then stamp the foliage, which is part of the Penny Black "Serene 30-472" clear stamp set.

I mounted the card on to dark blue card and then on to a white card blank.  Finally, adding some dots of black Ranger Enamel Accents.


  1. I just adore the dreamy look of the background with the added pretty stencilling Sam, and love the frame of leaves and added sentiment..a gorgeous card. I think this is quite a hefty ask doing this for 100 days but knowing you, I bet you manage to do it. x
