52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge - Week 18

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 18 is "Weather"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 18.

I've used three colours of Dylusion spray inks for the background colour, using Lemon Zest, Fresh Lime and Bubble Gum.

I've used Distress Glaze over "Crushed Grape" Dylusion ink through the Tim Holtz "Rays - THS003" stencil.

On the computer, I printed "Here Comes The Sun" in red, cutting it down and sticking into position on to the rays.

I then used four shades of Posca pens, using red, orange, yellow and white colours to draw on dots of colour on the lighter rays.

I then added gold dots using a metalic gold gel pen.  

I inked the edges of the tag using "Tulip Red" Versafine Clair Ink.

I mounted the tag on to a piece of black card and then drew around the tag using a metalic gold pen.


  1. Your sun rays are so bright and beautiful Sam, and the added dots of the different colours of Posca Pens really make it pop, and the word strips finish it perfectly. x
