52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2024 - Week 26

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

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 prompt for Week 26 is "Butterflies"


This is the tag that I have made for the Week 26.  I started with a white tag.  Using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the jug with the lavender in it.  The stamp is by Penny Black  and is called "Farm Fresh - 40-834", I created a mask using a post it note and covered the jug and flowers, then using the same ink stamped the butterfly background, which is also a stamp by Penny Black, called "Butterfly Charmer - 40/422".

I used Distress Oxide Inks to paint the scene, using "Mermaid Lagoon" for the background between the butterflies and "Pumice Stone" for the ground the jug stands on.

I used Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Bundled Sage for the lavender and Dried Marigold and Saltwater Taffy for the jug itself.

I didn't make a note of the colours I painted the butterflies.  

I inked the edges of the tag using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink, then mounted the tag on to a piece of navy blue coloured card.
