Under the moon's shadow

What a fab challenge from Elizabeth who is Guest designer at Dragon's Dream Tag it On. I've really struggled to get the effect I wanted for this tag - you know what its like when you get an idea but really struggle to transfer it to paper lol. 3 attempts in the bin and I'm still not totally happy with the finished product but here it is

The main image is a stamp from Non Sequitur which I havent used for years, stamped and then masked to create the background using my brayer and Big & Juicy ink (Hydrangea and Mountain Meadow). Instead of masking the moon, I cut it out and embossed it with clear sparkle EP. I also stamped around the edges of the tag with a Tim Holtz background stamp and silver brilliance (again embossed with sparkle EP). The trees are Elusive Images stamps and the rocks in the foreground from Non Sequitur, again they are highlighted with a little sparkle. I wanted the lady to look like she's just come out of the water and is catching the moonlight so I've coloured her with stardust pens and a water brush and then used a versamark pen and sparkle EP for highlights which don't show up too well. The image is matted on to some black card and the tag is finished off with a couple of silver eyelets and some black ribbon.

This tag is also for Cynthia's challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog which is 'Trees' and also for Fab'n'Funky Challenge which is to use a neglected stamp

Thanks for looking
