You know I like tags don't you?


This one was inspired last evening when I was updating the Challenges for Days Wednesday List.   One of the pleasures of maintaining these lists is seeing the variety of challenge, styles, and themes that the wonderful community of crafters share.

Inspiration fired up the tag was cut using an old clocking in card.   Stamped with Andy Skinner stamps that refer to flying and world travel.   The clocks are a Kaiser Craft stamp, I used their keys stamp on two pieces of vellum which were attached with a grommet and then rolled up from the bottom.   Vellum die cut wings embossed and glued with silicon just at the base.  Some Washi tape holds the rolled vellum up metal wings and a key added on top.   ProMarkers were used to colour parts of the globe and the seconds dials on the clock/watch faces.
