Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas tags Day 6


I just knew that flipping reindeer would appear before too long. Not a good start, I didn't have anything, so had to be devious. I used the fir tree die ( only bought it last week) for the trees on the left, and one of my flourish collection to stamp the background Used a ribbon at the bottom, and made a greetings thingy. Now comes the devious bit. I scanned in the reindeer from the picture on the sale packet and enlarged it. Cut it out of grungepaper and embossed with a circle embossing folder, only because I couldn't find my scroll one. I found it after I had finished. I had to mix a blue paint for the deer, and am not very pleased with the result. The embossing folder wasn't as deep as Tim's so it is not as effective.. I don't have any metal word things either so hung some bells on instead.
