Creative Expressions monthly DT project

Another Friday comes along and I can't believe this time last week I was on the train to SECC. It's gone so quick!!

This month the Creative Expressions DT were lucky enough to receive 2 stamp sets to play with, The Heartfelt Ornament Medallion set and The Let it Snow set.
I've used a bit of both this week.

So I cut a tag on my Cameo with the Inkessentials speciality stamping paper. I then used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour the blank tag, just rubbing them over with a blending tool. You can't really see in the pic but I then inked up one of the ornaments from the Heartfelt ornament medallion set with versamark and stamped randomly over the tag adding clear embossing powder. I love the flourish on Sam Poole's Art ladies , so I stamped that in black again randomly.
The reindeer and sentiment from the Let it snow set were stamped onto an old book page with versamark and white embossing powder. I tore around the images and added some gold pen around the outlines. I adhered them with 3D pads. To outline the actual tag I used versamark and a detail gold embossing powder. I then added a jingle bell, which was silver so I used the detail gold embossing powder to cover it. A ribbon was added and voila that's it!!

Hope you like my tag, I'll be back next week with my next Creative Expressions DT project.
