Pile It On! Challenge - Tags

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we want to see:

(Or tags on your projects)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps.

I started by stamping my sentiment (a Penny Black stamp) in Versamark, then heat embossed it in white. I blended four different blue Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans & Chipped Saphire) over the top...then spritzed over a little water, before drying it with my heat gun. I cut the trees from co-ordinating colours of Distress Ink Core'dinations card using a Marianne Designs die, then embossed them using my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder...sanding over the surface to reveal the core. I added some adhesive pearls to look like snow in the sky, then attached some random ribbons/fibres (from Craft Obsessions, Hobbycraft and the Ribbon Girls) to the top of the tag.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.

This is such a lovely tag. I love how you've used this tree die to create this beautiful winter/Christmas scene. Lovely colors, and the ribbons coordinate perfectly with the colors you've used for the trees.
