Look to the skies

Its been ages since I dreamed along with Frankie and her team at Dragon's Dream Tag it on but for once i've managed to get a tag finished for this weeks challenge which is 'Look to the skies' 

I love these stamps, Neverland from Artistic Outpost and they came to mind as soon as i saw the challenge theme at DDTIO. I masked the moon, stamped and masked John and Michael and the houses. Then I brayered the sky lightly with summer sky memento ink and created some clouds using Barbara Gray's versmark and cotton wool technique. I left it to dry for a little while and then brayered over with Danube blue and a little tuxedo black. The versamark acts as a resist and when you buff it with some tissue the clouds appear.

I coloured the images with promarkers and edged the tag with a gold krylon pen, adding a gold eyelet and some blue ribbon to finish off.

I'm also entering this tag in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: Y is for yesterday
Allsorts: Free and easy
Craft us Crazy: anything goes
A spoon full of sugar: Create a tag
Totally Papercrafts: One for the boys

Thanks for calling by today, hope you're enjoying the weekend
