TIO - While Dragon's Dream #133

Time for another recipe from the Dragons DreamTeam... 'While Dragons Dream' - A night sky, a clear moon and mythical animals.

I had to stretch the definition of 'mythical animals' as I really don't have any suitable stamps of animals, and could find any images (my printer doesn't work, so couldn't download anything!) so I chose a fairy for my animal... 

I made the night sky on my tag with Dylusion inks (black marble and london blue) and some irridescent gold shimmer for stars (I couldn't find any silver shimmer!). Hope you can see them, I can't get a decent picture, it's too dark during the day and the flash at night doesn't help...

The fairy (Personal Impressions) is stamped on acetate with stazon ink, and painted with alcohol inks on both the front and back.  I then painted the back with a light coat of white paint to enable it to show up more on the dark tag background. The moon is by Stampscapes and I scribbled white paint and also some pewter distress stain on the tag to allow the moon stamp to show up.  The words come from a set I got years ago from The Stamp Bug. 

Look forward to seeing your tags. Don't forget to use at least one real stamp.
