Well, I was playing with stamps and saw my Fabulous Flourishes stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the Fabulous Flourishes with the Hot Air Balloon, which, in my imagination, created a "time machine". Thus, the theme for my tag was born!
I started by stamping and embossing the Fabulous Flourish with Verdigris powder onto paper from Tim's Destinations Paper Stash cut into a tag shape. I then stamped the Hot Air Balloon over the flourish and again onto a piece of scrap cream cardstock and watercolored it with Distress Inks. Using a stamp positioner, I lined up the Fabulous Flourish onto the balloon and then cut apart the balloon and the basket from the stamped image. I used foam tape to adhere the balloon and basket over the top of the stamped image on the tag.
I had some lovely thin fibers that I decided to adhere to the balloon to accent the "ropes." I adhered them all using Matte Medium. I finished off the hot air balloon by adhering the flag attached to the basket with foam tape..
The three gents is truly one of my favorite stamps and I knew they would work well with my Time Machine theme, so I stamped them on a separate piece of cream cardstock, colored with Distress Inks and cut out. Once again I used foam tape to adhere the image below the hot air balloon.
This piece would not be complete without the use of my favorite Ideology. I dyed some Crinkle Ribbon with several colors of Distress Stain and placed a finished bow I created at the top of the tag, placing a Custom Fastener with the word Traveller in the center. I also added a sproket gear to the center of the balloon along with a game spinner and as Chit Chat Stickers that spell "Journey Through Time". The last accent piece was a word band with embossed Verdigris powders around the edges.
