Moon and Stars Tag

Hi Friends:  Today's creation is a Moon and Stars Tag.  I loved creating this tag - it uses lots of texture and paint and was loads of fun!  See below for process, challenges, and products.  Have a super crafty day!

Full Tag:

Detail of the sentiment:

On the base tag, I layered strips of washi tape for texture, then used a moon/stars stencil with silver embossing paste near the top.  I used several layers of colors (see below) of Distress Paints to color the background, edged the tag in black, then sprayed the tag with LSG spray to add even more shimmer.  (I love the effect of the silver Distress Paint on the tag - in person, the use of the dabber top makes the spots almost look like stars!)  I stamped the saying with Stazon silver ink onto recycled plastic packaging, edged it with silver and black paint, then stapled it near the bottom of the tag.  I also used recycled plastic packaging to cut out the stars, then colored them with the below Alcohol Inks, edged them with the black paint, then attached them to the tag.  I finished the tag off with a generous bunch of blue and silver fibers from my stash.
