Hello Everyone and Welcome
Not long now - just 9 sleeps to go to ......! Are all you ready?
I thought I was and then realised I'd overestimated the time I had left and am now running around frantically trying to catch up as the clock ticks forever nearer to the big day.
Today though I'm taking time out to share with you one of the Christmas cards I have made using some of Tim Holtz fabulous products- stamps, dies, embossing folders, distress inks and paints, industrous stickers, metallic card stock, watercolour card stock and ideology .
Let me introduce to the The Dapper Deer all dressed to impress!
The background is heat embossed onto black card stock using Tim Holtz Holiday words stamp and clear embossing powder
Tim Holtz BIgz dapper die dressed the deer.
(Run the die through the Big shot to just above the lapels so as not to die cut the moustache or top hat)
Embossed silver mirrorboard using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz knit set and Tim Holtz painted industrial technique created a panel to use for the dickie bow, lapels, collar tips and buttons
The deer head (Tim Holtz Scribble woodland stamp set ) is stamped in Black archival onto watercolour card stock ( smooth side) ,and subtly painted using hickory smoke distress paint as a watercolour. The antlers are heat embossed using silver embossing folder
and given a touch of black soot distress paint.
Industrious stickers( borders and frames) embellished the edges of the background, once matted and layered using Tim Holtz silver metallic card stock and white card stock
With a few pieces of Christmas related ideology, hex nuts topped with festive red gems for buttons and some splatters of snow (Picket fence distress paint) and Dapper Deer is ready to celebrate Christmas in style!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by . I hope you have enjoyed your visit.
I'll be back at some point in the coming weeks to share a few more of the Christmas cards I have made this year so look forward to seeing you again soon .
Until then have fun, be good and keep believing!!!
