Balloons Tag

Hello, it is Kate here today sharing a tag. Since it has been a while since I made a tag I thought I would combine it with one of my loves, steampunk. I started with a blank tag that I gessoed. I then added some book paper and sprayed the background with ink. I embossed with a gear themed embossing folder. I ran an ink pad over the embossed surface, and dipped the tag in clear embossing powder. After heat setting the background , I stamped and cut several balloons from the Paris Exposition stamp plate. I layered them over each other and used pop dots and a bit of Stickles. I finished it off with a coordinating flower I had lying around on my desk. Thank you for looking and Happy Weekend!

This is so cool! I love the gears in the background and the layered dimension for the balloons works so brilliantly to create the sense of depth - fantastic tag, Kate!
