Shh It's a Secret Tag Reveal

As moderator of the Pages In Time Tags and Things Group, I challenged the group members to use a set of supplies to create a tag.  Today is the reveal, and I'm so impressed with the creative use of some simple supplies.  Each tag is completely different. Here is my take on my own challenge.

First I painted the shelf liner with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in pearl and then pressed it onto the tag.  It looks like shiny snow and you can see the pattern of the shelf liner if you look closely.  I then cut up the same shelf liner along the ridge so that it looked like lace and added it to the bottom and used it for a ribbon at the top.  On the bottom half of the tag I also added Rock Candy Crackle topped with glitter.
My personal addition is the image from Red Lead Paperworks collage sheet which I coated with glitter.  I added some Stickles to the snowflake and the runners of the sled.  I distressed and altered the color of the ticket to match my Distress Ink . I edged the tag with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Gold.

The original supplies were the tag, shelf liner, ribbon trim, Jolly label, snowflake, and ticket.

Wowza, this is stunning! Love how it shimmers (love how you were actually able to capture that in the photo - I am in awe!), and the use of the supplies is brilliant. Thanks for sharing, and Merry Christmas!
