Tag Your It, Anything with a Tag.

Shell at Come and Get it Challenges this week picked one of my favourite challenges, tags. I created this Christmas tag for a friend for Christmas.  

I first coated my ornament shaped card with gesso and added some cord, then  I painted the total background with white acrylic paint.  Next I added a torn doily, several different colours, sizes and textures of snowflakes.  Next I added my Santa image and my sentiment. To complete my tag I added a hint of colour with  Shattered Glass Distress Ink.

I hope you will join us this week and show us your tags at Come and Get it Challenges.  Have a creative day.
