Stag Tag........

I had fun with this one, using lots of different mediums.........
Here is my Stag Tag
Absolutely delighted, Amazed and thrilled to be a top three in Loll's Christmas Tag extravaganza-
How Lucky am I xx Thank you very much xx
I have used..........
Inka Gold in Platinum and Mint Green for the 'sky' and some of the flowers.
Starlights paint in Silver, Platinum and Menthol for some of the flowers, some of the leaves and the Stag, Wood embellishment.
Frantage Shabby Green and Shabby White for some the leaves.
Finnabair Snowflake Dimensional Paste for the snow Mountains.
Imagination Crafts Diamond Sparkle Medium for the shards of Icicles, through a stencil.

I liked how the Inka Golds blended when swooshed for the 'sky' and some of the leaves.
I also added texture to the 'sky' using a palette knife.

The Poinsettia flower and leaves have been die cut from Card, Mirror Card 
and Vellum to give different textures.
I drew in the pine trees and hi-lighted with a white pen.

The stag is a wood embellishment painted in Silver Starlights, which covered really well.
I popped in shiny beads from my stash to the centers of the poinsettias.
The corrugated card was finished off with silver embossing around the edges.
There's lots of texture, shine, different mediums, time and fun that went into this tag.
I loved the tone on tone colours of the tag and how the different mediums played well together.
I thought the Stag was looking at the star and was making a wish x

I wanted to show you this photo of the first background I did out of the Inka's...
It ended up looking like a scene, maybe a tree trunk on the left hand side?
Absolutely purely accidental after doing the swooshing!
Anyway....I couldn't use it as I thought I may use it another time as a starting point for a card?

I recently bought a Stag for Christmas and thought these where fun photos to pop on my post x

This is well and truly a Mixed Media Christmas Tag
Anything but a Card and Using a Stencil-I used a stencil for the Icicles
Loved getting  inky and had fun making the tag

  3. Hello there. Firstly, thank you for the lovely comments that you've left on my blog and for asking about my Granddaughter. She's had a really bad sickness bug and as she's only 16 months, it made her quite poorly in a very short time. I'm pleased to say that she's slowly on the mend and starting to get into mischief again, which is a good sign :)
    Your tag is absolutely wonderful with it's many layers and texture. I also love the delicate pastel green that you've used and it works beautifully with the white and silver. It's definitely a stunner! x
