52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 13

The challenge for 2024 is weekly.  I will provide you with a prompt/theme each Sunday morning through out the year.  The challenge is very relaxed.  You can do as much or as little as you like.  You can create cards, tags, Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) or index cards, the choice is yours. You just go with what ever is in your head at the time.  You can stamp, get inky, use patterned papers, texture, embellish it is all down to you.

There is a dedicated private Facebook Group, with a lovely bunch of people who are already sharing their makes from previous challenges.  You can find the group by clicking this link.  I'd love you to join in.

The Crafting Niche 52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge 2024:

The prompt for Week 13 is "On The Water"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 13.

For my tag, I have used a Stampin' Up stamp set that I have had in my stash for a while, called "Moon Lake".  I used the bird and the little island with the boat and tree from the stamp set, stamping both in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I used some of my Stampscape stamps on this tag too, using the "Small Isle" stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink and the "Reeds" stamped in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink in both first and second generation stamping.

I then coloured in the water area, using "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink.

For the sky I used a mix of Distress Oxide Inks using "Tumbled Glass", "Lost Shadow" and "Weathered Wood".

I then moved on to the boat using two shades of brown Distress Oxide Inks:  Tea Dye and Frayed Burlap, I used the same shades to colour the bird too.

For the tree canopy I used three shades of green Distress Oxide Inks:  Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness, using "Frayed Burlap" for the tree trunk.

For the sand around the boat I used "Mustard Seed" Distress Oxide Inks.

Other mediums I used on this tag were Posca Pens, gel pens and a 2B pencil too.


  1. What a pretty watery scene you put together Sam using the different colours of Oxide inks and stamps from Stamping Up and Stampscape which work beautifully together, and also some great additional pen and pencil work too...just brilliant. x
