Do you remember snail mail?

Do you remember the excitement of getting snail mail? I used to have Pen Pals as a girl and loved getting fancy stationery, photos and even coins in the mail from them.  Now it's all emails and text messages - it's fast, but it's not as fun.

I saw this cute little snail and instantly thought of good ol' snail mail.  So I made a tag to add to my next project.

This tag started as a piece of green cardstock.  I trimmed it to make a tag shape and then added the printed image.  If you want a cute little snail you can find it at Kinda Cute - I added the googly eyes and coloured him up in delicious greens and shiny browns.  Then I created some 3D slime using Glossy Accents.  I added some bubbles to the "slime" by heating it with my heating gun.

I haven't used fibers in a long time, and tags are the perfect excuse to use lots of them!  I went for lots of colours to accent the greens in the tag.
