Travel Tag

The current challenge over on Tag Tuesday is travel.  I am in the midst of report writing and looking forward to the summer holidays so I found a tag to join in with.

As usual when I want a quick background, I used the top layer of a paper towel mop up sheet in blue to act as the sky (glued and sealed all over with Distress Collage Medium, dried and trimmed onto a #8 manilla tag).
The balloons are stamps - now discontinued - by Clarity Crafts (Hot Air Balloons set; the largest and middle sized balloon), stamped onto three different pieces of patterned paper, fussy cut and layered up.  Once added, the whole tag was once again given a good coat of distress collage medium and dried thoroughly.
The Phthalo Blue Big Brush marker (Faber-Castell) was blended around each of the balloons and along some of the edges of the tag.
I decided to add more of the Phthalo Blue to emphasize the sky, leaving some of the cream areas to give the hint of clouds.
A sentiment from the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker book, cut in two, completed the tag.
