Tag Along Challenge #68

Hello fellow Crafters,

I have not been taking part in the Tag Along Challenge as much I would like lately... This week the theme is 'Reindeer'. Now,  I had to think a little bit as I do not own any reindeer stamps and also have no Ephemera depicting reindeer.
My favourite stamp from Roc Nicholas is 'Horse' so I decided to give him an 'operation' and turn him into a reindeer !

I used some Designer Paper with little reindeer on for the tag but painted some of the pattern out as I thought it was too busy. The area behind the 'Horse'/reindeer was painted with blue acrylic paint..
The bottom of the tag has a different bit of DP to suggest the ground the reindeer is standing on. 
I inked the edges and then stamped the 'Horse', masking off certain bits, like his hat, his mane, his nose and his tail. I redrew those. I coloured him with Copic Markers, cut him out and adhered him on his prepared area on the tag. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and White embossed.  A bit of ribbon and a bit of twine finished the tag off. 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it....
