Maker's Monday: Fly

Supplies:
Tim Holtz Vignette Panel (largest size with backer board)
Tim Holtz Christmas Stack golden star paper
Tim Holtz Typography letters 'FLY'
Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Gold Mixative
Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Walnut Stain
Tim Holtz Matte Medium
Glossy Accents
Red acrylic paint
Dark green acrylic paint
Vintage plastic reindeer
Sophisticated Finishes Rust paint
Four felt adhesive dots

Tools:
Scissors
Paint brushes
Cotton swab
