Reindeer Noel Tag

The other day at band camp....

The other day when my friend Gretchen stopped by, I was helping her with an idea for her quote books. Beautiful hand-made books full of various quotes she collects. She wanted a unique cover for a watercolorist. So, she sparked an idea with me, with a very simple technique that always turns out great!

I used Distress Inks pads in Forest Moss, Bundled Sage and Pine Needles, stamped ont watercolor paper, then spritzed with water. WAIT WAIT WAIT
for the inks to blend out, and then heat it with the heat gun!
I over sprayed it with Perfect Mists in Pearls for extra shimmer!

I stamped a quote over the card I made from Wendy Vecchi's line. But on the tag, I knew the Reindeer would be perfect!
He has a wreath that is from watch parts!
I used the Tattered Banner Die cut from Kraft Glassine and inked with Picket Fence Distress Stain. It's stamped with music.

The NOEL 25 die was cut from heavier glitter paper by Recollections.

And the Tree, I bleached this. Yes I did! Post below about that!
