Deck the halls

Morning on a wet and wild morning!! Just took Milly out and nearly got blown away!!
Today I'd like to show you my Creative Expressions DT project for this week.

A bit of a different style from me but I was quite pleased with how it turned out. I kinda took the photo at an odd angle because I wanted to show the shimmer on the card. It is all one shade over the card!!

I took a piece of black textured card and versamarked it all over and then brushed over 2 colours of mica powders.  I then stamped out the beautiful snowflake bauble from the Heartfelt Ornamental Medallion stamp set randomly with versamark and then used white embossing powder. Because the versamark was still wet the powder sprinkled a bit but I think it looks ok as it looks like fine snow. Next I stamped out some of the more solid snowflake stamps onto black card with versamark and then used the white embossing powder. I cut around them and poked a small hole in the top of each of them. I then threaded through some twine and added a blue bow to each. I then just hung them from the top of the card. The sentiment is from the Let it snow stamp set and I've just done the same , stamped onto black card and embossed with white embossing powder.

Don't forget to check out the other DT girls projects, all stunning!! I'll be showing you more from Creative Expressions next week.
