Hello fellow Crafters,

This is my second posting for today, I also made this tag :

I started with Gesso which I coloured with a few drops of Distress Ink (from a reinker bottle). I used Scattered straw. I then used one of my new stamps from Tim Holtz: the hot air balloon and stamped it with StaZon on the tag. After that I decided to use the place/streetname stamp again. I stamped it over the top of the balloon and clear embossed it. I then rubbed the whole think lightly with brown Archival Ink which made it stand out a bit more. I used the same ink around the egdes.
I then stamped the balloon again on patterned paper and cut out the balloon itself and the basket. I clear embossed these bits and glued them on the tag. I used a marker to colour the flag and sandbags.
The word 'discover' is a sticker and after matting the tag on some brown cardstock a black ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you like it ..... 


  1. Leuke tag, mooi hoe je die achtergrond hebt gemaakt!
    en de ATC hieronder is ook errug leuk!

  2. Corrie, the is absolutely beautiful. First, I love your vintage color absolutely favorite of all time, of course! But, mostly, I love how you painstakingly "decorated" your balloon with what I thought was fabric--creatively done with patterned paper instead. You put a lot of creativity and energy into this small space, and it paid off big time!
