For Day 1 challenge, we were required to create a tag that must include Santa, metal and the color red. I tend to run away from tag challenges so I decided to give this a try. For my tag, I used the only christmas kit I own from December 2011. I was able to contain all the items needed just from this one kit. For my background I always try to use as much mixed medium as I can on a project. I used gel medium to attach the Tim Holtz tissue paper to the manilla number 8 size tag. I used my prima bubbles stencil to add viva decor modeling cream in pearl. Then I added the rest of the embellies that was included in the kit.

For Day 2 challenge, we were required to create a tag using the color white, silver and wings. For this challenge, I had the opportunity to use some mixed medium and some products I never opened. To create my background, I used gesso to paint the manilla number 8 size tag. I added modeling paste with the prima crackle stencil. I sprayed abdominable snow glimmermist over the background when everything was dried. For my dressform, I used a chipboard created from the tim holtz dress form die and altered it with brushed pewter distress stain. I love that distress stain. I do not know why I never used it. I took silver ribbon, silver stickles and part of the title bling to create the dress. Then I added a few embellies from my stash to finish the tag.
