Dragons Dream - Tag it On - Nine

Wow, that two weeks flew by!  Thanks for your entries to Catherine's '3' challenge for the Dragons .
This time, the very lovely Gabrielle has chosen 9 . Don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tag, and to incorporate 9 somewhere! 
Welcome, to Dressed Up to the Nines

 I started by painting my tag (size 10) with bands of the new limited edition Fresco paints (from the bottom, Professor Plum Captain Peacock, Granny Smith and Teresa Green; and the gap at the top is Vanilla (not a limited edition one)

I lightly stamped my top image on the tag, and applied a layer of crackle glaze to the inside of the image.
 when that was dry, Vanilla on top and let the crackle do it's thing, revealing hints of the colours underneath. Stamped the image over the top

 added another layer of the paints on top of the bands, to intensify the colours, and stencilled a pattern on the background (used Prof Plum and Teresa Green).
The 9 came from a Paperartsy plate by JoFY.
so did the Dream at the top, and then added a ribbon.

Hope to see your take on 9, this fortnight.

Great tag, Helen and what a great idea too! Sorry I'm so late commenting. I was unwell last week and also had to go to a funeral, so I've got a bit behind with everything. xx
