12 tags of christmas #8

I have had the day off and really enjoyed making this tag.

Todays technique was to use masking. I do actually have some of Tim Holtz masks - but I have the barb wire and did not manage to fit that into a holiday theme. I could of course go for a goth holiday, but was not in the mood.

I don't know were this gorgeous sleigh comes from, but my reindeer of course is from Layers of Colors. I love, love, love the Reindeer Waltz set! I stamped the sleigh twice. I colored on of them with Fired Brick Distress ink and cut it out. Then I stampd some music over it and embossed it with clear embossingpowder. The reindeer was stamped, colored, cut out and embossed with clear embossing powder too.
I colored the bg of the tag with Broken china, vintage photo and walnut stain then I sprayed some glimmer mist over it and stamped the flourish with vintage photo.
The corners are also from Layers of Colors - the Touch of Elegance set. Thank you so very, very much Laura! 
I stamped it in both corners and embossed with a black/silver embossing mix.

My houses are handdrawn and cut out. I colored them with a green pen and then embossed them with pine needle distress embossing and then gave it a coat of clear embossing on top. Cut and bend some wire for smoke.

I did not have a metal timepiece so I cut out this one from the Lost and found paper stack.

Thanks for stopping by!
