JustRite Friday Challenge #077: Tag! You're It!

I created this tag project for a friend going to the 2012 Olympics and as a special nod to London in celebration of the Olympic games. Wouldn't this be fun slipped into a plastic luggage tag holder so you could spot your checked suitcase easily when it came off the ramp?! I'm posting it for this challenge at JustRite #077.


My tag began with JustRite's London Background Stamp, stamped in black on white CS and distressed with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I then stamped Big Ben again and sponged with Antique Linen and Faded Jeans. The London stamp was stamped in blue ink and 2012 was added with JustRite's retired Times New Roman 15pt. font (there are still a few awesome fonts left @ JR's Super Sale).

My Olympic rings were cut with the two smallest Spellbinders Classic Circle dies and then slit where needed to form the well-recognized symbol. To create my Good Luck gold medal I stamped the sentiment from JustRite's Spring Words clear stamp set in on gold foil CS and die cut with JustRite's Charm Dies.

JustRite's Lace Edge border stamp finishes off the bottom of my red layer, Want2Scrap swirl in black and white crinkled seam binding and red/blue fibers complete this tag -- it's ready to head to London!!!
