A Bon Voyage Tag

Big congrats to Charlene (Willow1) for being the FS last week over at Split Coast. I had fun checking out her lovely gallery and finally decided to CASE her Time Flies tag . I am always intrigued by tags when I see them on peoples blogs but I don't often make them myself so this was a good challenge for me!

I used different stamps and a different theme from Charlene's but used a similar color scheme and did background stamping.
I used some new travel theme 'rubbah' that I just got from Rubbernecker for my tag.

I stamped the background on the tag, then I stamped the sentiment cut with a Tim Holtz die and adhered it with foam tape after sponging the edges. The wings are a Tim Holtz die also.

I stamped the passport and ticket packet, sponged the edges and adhered them to the tag.

Then I tied two different color seam tapes through the hole at the top of the tag and added my bling!

This would be fun attached to some magazines or a music CD to give to a traveling friend, don't you think?!
