My Deer .........




More on a Christmas theme in this post.  The City Stamper Challenge Blog for week 236 is asking us to make a craft project featuring a deer so I made this.






I decided to make a little simple Christmassy hanging after having pulled out a load of embossed Grungeboard which has sat there in my stash, unused for ages.  I diecut a circle from the swirly Grungeboard and painted it with some beige acrylic paint. as the centre background.

The leaves were next diecut from a Tim Holtz tattered leaves Sizzix die from some green striped paper.  These were stuck in place behind the grungeboard centre as shown.






The deer again was diecut (TH Sizzix) from more of the same grungeboard, which this time was painted red.  A layer of dries clear glue was spread over the painted surface and some glamour dust glitter adhered for a bit of glitz. It was mounted on double foam pads to raise it off the surface.

Next I added a circle of faux clear gems and mounted the deer on foam pads.  I cut a hole with a crop-a-dile at the top and added a few strands of jute twine tied through to form a hanger to finish.

I was going to add a sentiment but thought that it looked better without.  What do you think?

  14. Such a pretty ornament. I love how you used double foam pads, to give your reindeer that extra depth. That's a tip I have stored away for future use :-)
