Magical mystery

This fortnight’s recipe at Dragonsdream Tag It On has been set by the talented Monique and isMagical mystery" - to include a little magic, some mystery and a little fairydust (plus the obligatory use of at least one stamp and for it to be on a tag).
The tag was cut from thick cardboard and I added a layer of Tissue Wrap on top. I sprayed this a couple of times with London Blue Dylusions spray, dabbing the excess off each time. While the tag was tacky I stamped on the stars in Sepia Archival Ink and covered them, and the tag with clear embossing powder. Then I added a little gold Jewel Enamels as the fairy dust from the recipe. I die cut a star and covered it in the Jewel Enamels and then clear embossing powder and cut out a hand. The sentiment is a quote from my daughter who would ask that of me when ever there was a clear night's sky! I think stars have always been both magical and mysterious for her (and me if I'm honest!)
I hope that you feel inspired to join in with us this fortnight - we'll make you very welcome!!!
