Christmas Tag

It has been so long since my last entry that you might be forgiven for thinking I had fallen off the face of the planet... not so, I just took a tumble down the stairs and unfortunately hurt more than my pride. ...But I'm  happy to report I have finally  been able to get back in the craftroom for short periods  - which is a good thing because I was having serious withdrawals.

So my first offering for a very long time is this Christmas tag. I made it for a one to one swap I signed up for before my tumble - and it made a nice starter project.
I used chipboard as a base for my tag and I used  some distress paint as a base. For the front of the tag I  made a mask to sponge the moon and then  used the White Christmas set and stamped the snow (using white craft ink) , then the reindeer,which I coloured with soft brown sugar marker. I added the wording and stamped the word Joy in real red. Final touch was a quick dab on the reindeer's nose with the real red marker.

For the reverse of the tag I  used my favourite Visions of Santa stamp set. I stamped the  main wording panel using antique distress  stain and stamped the Santas around the edges, finally adding the Tis' the Season line in Memento black at the bottom. I coloured the Santas with blendabilities and chalk marker and added a smudge of shimmer here and there.

And that's it from me for today. I truly hope that normal crafty service will soon be resumed.
Until then take care
