41 days and counting.........

Hello Everyone! back again with my second festive project for Wendy at The Stamp Attic using the new Hero Arts and Sizzix dies and stamps set! Sorry about the title of the post being such a stark reminder, but seeing it is only 41 days to go to the day, it is time to get organised, so hope this project helps!!
For today's project I have made an easily reproducible tag, that can be made in bulk. All my crafty friends will faint when they see this post - there is no designer paper! I wanted to keep the colours centred around the colours of the reindeer, with a bright blue background. I might have even crept slightly into CAS territory, which is really unknown for me!
The tag has been cut from Bazzill Kraft cardstock, using the Tim Holtz 'Movers and Shapers' tag die. The red strip has been cut from Bazzill Dotted Swiss card stock. All the edges have been given a bit of fuss using a Fiskars Threading Water edger punch.  I had to add a liberal bit of Stickles in Star Dust, to give it a bit of festive sparkle!

The snowflake has been cut using the die from the Hero / Sizzix set, and so has the reindeer. He has been coloured using Copic Markers. The background panel has been coloured with a blending pair of blue Copics. The snowflakes on the panel are a stamp from the set, coloured with Copic colourless blender, and pressed into the blue panel. The blender 'pushes' the coloured ink, leaving a lovely snowflake pattern! I'm going to have to start photographing the colours that I use, because my memory is shocking!! The sparkle on the blue panel is from the Rock Candy crackle paint that I coated the panel with. The sentiment again is from the same set - talk about versatile!
Thanks so much for looking! See you soon! K :-)
