A winter Holiday Tag

This fortnight's theme on Tag Tuesday is Winter Holidays and I think this wintery scene fits the prompt perfectly.

I never throw away my inky paper towels, as they can often provide the perfect background.  I had one in shades of blue and purple.  When I turned it on its side,  I could see a background, so took the top layer and added it to a #8 manilla tag, sealing, drying and trimming the edges.

I masked off an area at the top using one of the Clarity moon masks and stamped the stag from the Woodland Animals set by Clarity Crafts using Deep Lagoon Versafine ink.
Using the larger of the two trees from the Let Heaven & Nature Sing stamp set,  I added four trees at the bottom in Imperial Purple Versafine ink, using a stamp platform.  I laid a piece of copy paper over the stag and used a Spot On Sponge to add ink below so that he wouldn't be standing in mid air.
Next I blended Deep Lagoon Versafine ink around the moon mask using a Clarity stencil brush.
To finish,  I added the sentiment from the same stamp set as the tree in Imperial Purple Versafine ink.
