Deer Tags

Hello! Today I have some more Christmas tags. I realized my wrapping paper this year is navy blue with snowflakes on it, so those brown tags I made last week didn't coordinate too well.

I made the one above first, then used it as a model for the others. I used a lighter ink to stamp the deer on the additional tags and think I should have stuck with the black deer. I like that one better. I added a little dangly tag to each with the sentiment stamped on it and plan to write the recipients name on the back of that, using a gel pen.

I cut the circle, from Pure Luxury White, using circle Nestabilities, I masked the bottom with a torn sticky note and then sponged with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. 

Added another torn sticky note to make another snowbank and sponged again. 

Using Forest Moss Distress Ink, I stamped off the tree image on scratch paper once, then stamped on the background. 

Then stamped again, without re-inking, for an even lighter impression. 

I removed the masks and sponged lightly around the edges with Weathered Wood. 

Stamped the grass image along the bottom, again, stamping off on scratch paper first. 

Stamped the deer with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then added shadows to the trees and deer using YG91 and N3 copic markers.

I layered with Pure Luxury In The Navy and used Baby Boy Blue, cut with Spellbinders Fluer Di Lis die. The sentiment was cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities and layered with In The Navy, cut with Petite Scallop Oval Nesties.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!

Theresa, I have this flat indent on the front of my forehead - it's from when I slap myself thinking....why didn't I think of that. I have ever one of these sets and I never brought this combo up on my mental screen. I like the black deer too, yet they're all FABULOUS. You sooooooo ROCK!!!
