Tag~ ChitChat~Shake It!~SimonSaysStamp Wednesday

Hey There,
Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th if you celebrate the day and a fun relaxing weekend never-the-less!

I saw the prompt posted last Wednesday at Simon Says Stamp, Wednesday Challenge to Shake It. It sounded so fun and different for me. A really cool prompt. Well...the idea was in my brain that I wanted to do something and I was patiently mulling it over in my brain and struggling to ignore all the can't dos and must dos that annoying inner voice possesses. Now so impatiently waiting for that A-HA! moment when I could pull it all together...

Fast forward to this morning....yes I seem to create, work, (have more fun) with a deadline looming!.....I came across a blog post about upcycling packaging. This one at ArtistCellar to reuse the plastic bubble that holds an object onto a board backer card. A-HA! finally the thing to hold the shaker stuff and without spending anything new!! Yay!

Thus this tag was born, it is very young, be kind! I have always loved the clear acrylic 'wands' filled with oil and glitter and various treasures to eye-spy! This is my tribute to that mesmerizing toy:)

A simple tag with distress paint, embossing paste, fancy tape, stamped stained tissue, all mounted on a manila tag for extra support for all the shaking!

I used the Tim Holtz ChitChat stickers and edged with Distress Ink for the words and Distress Glitter for the sparkle! The tissue is small bits from the stained tissue I stamped the stamp and time companion sentiment onto.

Thank you for looking! I hope you like it:) Find me playing at
