52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 15

This is a weekly challenge. I 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 15 is "Spring"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 15.  

I started with a white tag and stamped the branches, feeder and bird in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  All the stamps are part of a Clarity Stamps set called "Garden Birds".

I then lay the Clarity Stamps "Peacock Feathers Stencil" over the tag and used "Sky Blue" Ranger Archival Ink through the stencil.  Around the edges of the tag, I used "Bundled Sage" Distress Oxide Ink.

I then coloured the stamed image using various shades of Distress Oxide Inks, applied with a paint brush.  

  • For the bird I used "Squeezed Lemonade" and "Faded Jeans".
  • For the branches I used "Tea Dye" and "Gathered Twigs".
  • For the blossom I used "Spun Sugar" and "Victorian Velvet"
Finally, I added a Lavinia Stamps word sticker from their Stickers #6 set.
