TH #10 - October Tag

Always a double challenge in October for me as I have to find a different theme for my tag as well as attempt the techniques. Although I have to say I love the moon on Tim's Tag so I went from there.

Usually find it hard to stray from the colours Tim uses but the thought of "Blue Moon" came into my head so blues it was for me. Luckily I had some royal blue glitter and a moon shape already cut out in black card from some iris folding I did some years ago.

I added some acrylic paints in with some distress paints for the background marbling and used ultramarine staz-on for the stamping. As I hadn't got the frame die I used the frame embossing folder instead and inked it with Chipped Sapphire.

I used my Dymo to print the words and finished off with some stars, navy ribbon and tinsel for a magical feel. Love my mystical "Blue Moon" tag.

Crazy house-moving (family home of 40 years to be cleared!) means I've fallen off the Craftyblogland wagon lately - but wow, I love this take on Tim's tag... the moody blues are delicious, and I love your sparkly moon!
