Using the beautiful deer wooden XMAS-456 embellishment from Southern Ridge Trading Co, I made up some gift tags. These are actually atc sized (3.5" x 2.5").
The deer is so perfect, I didn't want to add anything to it, but the background is created by swiping victorian velvet distress paint over a manilla tag leaving some areas clear. Then I added picket fence distress stain and the paint acts as a resist. I added a layer of distress crackle paint in clear rock candy. Look how gorgeous it is when dry, it highlights the deer beautifully :
I stamped the ground / postmark in baked brown sugar Stampin' Up! ink on top of the crackle paint and added the seam binding which was colored with the victorian velvet distress paint. I mounted the tag onto baked brown sugar card stock and lightly edged it with Stampendous shabby pink embossing enamel.
I entered them into the Tag Along challenge this week #68 - its all about reindeer :)
Yay, got picked in the top 3 :)
I also used these as ATC's to trade, as part of the OK ATC trade I facilitate :)
Thanks for stopping by.
