First Project......

.....for Creative Expressions.  I was lucky enough to have been picked to be on their 2013/2014 Design Team.......pleased might be a bit of an understatement!! Lol!

Anyway here is a tag using a stamp off of their Winter Flower stamp plate.

I cut a tag shape and coloured by adding some Forest Moss and Antique Linen Distress Paint to a craft sheet, spritzing with water and dragging tag through. The rip a bit of vintage book paper and adhere to tag, then edge tag with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using a bit of Cut 'n' Dry.  Take a piece of corrugated card (rescue a few old boxes!) and cut to tag shape slightly larger than the one you've just coloured, tear e few bits of the surface off to reveal the corrugations.  Brush a little of the Antique Linen Distress Paint over the edges and then shade with some of the Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Glue coloured tag to corrugated tag.
Stamp the flower with black ink onto some white card and then paint with Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy and Mustard Seed), cut out the flowers and arrange onto tag then when happy with arrangement glue in place. Stamp the sentiment, cut out, edge with distress ink and glue in place.  To finish lightly apply a little Creative Expression Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax to the edges of the base tag and then top tags with a bow of Pewter Crushed Silk ribbon.
Thanks for looking
