Christmas is coming...

For my latest Creative Expressions DT project I have made a Christmas Tag using their  Stylish 1 Christmas stamp set. As Christmas comes ever closer I know we will see lots of the traditional red and green combos but I just didn't feel ready for that today and so I have made mine using Weathered Wood and Old Paper Distress Inks
The tag was a piece of white card stamped, using the fabulous swirly stamp in the set, in both colours with both inks. Then I stamped three baubles and clear embossed them and cut them out. The sentiment is again stamped onto a little white card and coloured with Old Paper Distress Ink. 
The ribbon I inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink (I love colouring my own ribbons) and I added a little pearl and crystal embellishment. I really enjoyed the challenge of using Christmas stamps but in non-Christmassy colours! Hope you have a great week - half term is over for me and so I'm back to work tomorrow! My lovely husband has just bought the ironing board in - so I think I should take the unsubtle hint!!! Gabrielle x
