Waving At The New Creative Expressions Team

I mentioned a while back that I had other DT news well I'm back on the Creative Expressions team and here is my first post in the new Creative Expressions team for 2012/2013 period. But before we get started I thought I would do a big wave to all the new guys and also to my 2011/2012 Creative Expressions teamie Tracy Evans.


I'm sure you probably know some of these fabulous gals already but go and say hello when you have a chance and checkout their gorgeous blogs. Whilst you are at it you might want to go checkout the Creative Expressions blog and their Facebook page too.

Right! So who is up for a make this Sunday?

The Creative Expressions team have got their first stamp kit and you might spot that we have different stamp kits, so lots of different makes to checkout and get you making!

I'm working from the Tim Holtz by Stampers Anonymous – Christmas Time kit and I thought I would go a bit mixed media elements but in a clean and simple design for my first make.

The poinsettia was stamped onto a gesso treated collage book page. I used a brush to apply Ranger Distress inks on the stamp before stamping, then use the brush to pullout the colour on the stamped image to make it pop more. 

Of course if you have the Distress Markers you can use those directly on the stamp but I don't have any so I used a brush to apply the ink instead and it works just fine!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday hop around the blogs and I will catch all later.
