Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas Day 1 - Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer


It's Day one of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!



Today's Christmas song inspiration is Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. I created a rustic tag with lots of texture and sparkle. And even a mini-tag in Rudolph's hooves!

I coloured the tag base with Rouge ink direct to paper and then stamped a cozy background on it with the same ink for a tone-on-tone look.

I cut the reindeer pieces from Animal Box Toppers for the reindeer and coloured them with Copic markers, adding a coat of Crystal Glaze on his nose for shine, and Stickles to his hooves and antlers for sparkle.
