Reindeer Tag

I'm back with another tag today, and this time I did some paper piecing:
I started by cutting the Hero Arts tag without the web out of watercolor paper. The only reason I used watercolor paper is because I wanted the tag to have some texture. I decided to sketch the reindeer first, so I didn't have to worry about the antlers breaking as the design is so intricate. Then I used Broken China and an ink applicator to color the entire tag, and I used Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs just around the edges.
Then I cut the Reindeer out of patterned paper from the Nordic Holidays pack by Basic Grey. I hand cut a snow bank from white cardstock, glued it to the front of the tag, and stamped the sentiment. For the sentiment I cut out variuous Hero Arts sentiments, so I got the words I wanted to use.
Then I glued the reindeer to the tag, added some glossy Accents for the eye and some Diamond Stickles to the snow bank. I added dots of stickles to make it look like it was snowing, so sparkly!!
Entering this tag in the same two challenges, Hero Arts:
and Simon Says Stamp Challlenge:
Hoped you liked it and thanks for stopping by!!
