Oh Deer

Day Two of  Tim Tags!


I had the most fun creating the resist paper background.  The background started with kraft paper and stamping over it with Ranger Black Archival Ink. I used the letters stamp from the Stampers Anonymous Artful Artifacts plate. I stamped it unevenly to create a softer background.  After that dried, I stamped the Merry Christmas and Elegant Damask stamps (Memory Box) using versamark and clear embossed them. 
Then I followed Tim's instructions for the white wash. 

The deer was cut from music sheets. I added antlers using yesterdays leftover fir branches. I also am in love with some new silver burnishing I purchased from Viva and I added touches of it all over my tag. :) 

I replaced the fir wreath with the silver trim and added gold bells. (They are so cute but require the floss holder trick to get the twine through the hole) 

Have a wonderful day!
