ATC Swap

Hi Crafters,

These are the atc's that I created for the July Swap at Charmed Cards and Crafts. 

A close-up to show the texture and details.

We had a mood board to take inspiration from which was created using the new Cosmos collection papers from Stamperia.

I used a Sheena Douglas Distressed Grid stencil, texture paste, crackle paste, various paints and Andy Skinner embossing powders to create the texture for my background. My reindeer was cut using an Impression Obsession die and dry brushed with white paint before adding a little sparkle using Nuvo Glacier paste - which doesn't show up in my photo's <groan>
The label was printed on the computer and clear embossed for durability. A few white splatters and presto!

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Love To Craft - #37 ATG
Creative Moments - #174 ATG
More Mixed Media Challenge - ATG opt. Bright

Thank you for all the lovely comments here recently, I really do appreciate your support and encouragement.
