I'm sure you've seen the deer heads that seem to be everywhere in the design world these days. Last night I got it into my head that I could make one using Tim Holtz's Reindeer Flight die - and it worked! By cutting them from thick mat board and stacking them, I was able to create a facsimile of a mounted deer (I forgot the antlers tho - oops!).
Claudine Hellmuth Studio Matte Medium. The ornament base was made from one of the houses from the Sizzix Artful Dwellings die. The great thing about this die is that it's a Movers and Shapers die, so I could add my Mini Styled Labels die to the center of it and cut a perfect window - love that!
Artistic Outpost's Sleigh Ride stamp collection, using a Snow Cap Dabber. When that was dry, I sponged over it lightly with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress inks, carefully wiping the ink from the stamped images. The back of the ornament was stamped with a music image from Artistic Outpost's Ephemeral Backgrounds and Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.
To finish off my ornament, I cut a banner from white paper using Tim Holtz's Tattered Banners die and stamped it with a sentiment, again, from AO's Sleigh Ride stamp set. Finally, I added a little strip of trim that was cut using the Sizzix Vintage Lace die to the bottom, and a little Grungeboard star to the top. Oh, and the little wreath around her neck is one that I got at Hobby Lobby and bleached - love that look!
