Santa's sleigh and reindeer canvas

I have used the large running and trotting reindeer and the large sleigh for this canvas project.

The canvas has been decorated on the reverse side, I started off by putting some texture paste on the panel inside the canvas and then I added a smidgen of paint here and there.  I painted the outside in a pale blue which I then covered here and there with UTEE.  Whilst it was hot I stamped into it with a snowflake stamp and then, once dry, I dabbed on some Viva Decor precious metal silver paint.

The reindeer and sleigh have been painted and inked with DI and I stamped a flourish on the side of the sleigh and embossed it.

Santa is an image from some Christmassy paper I had and I laid some material around him inside the sleigh.
