Reach for the Stars Tag

This week on the Tando Creative blog the theme is 'In The Stars' .
For my project I decided to decorate a Tando Long Tag with a moon and stars theme.
I used DecoArt Chalky Finish in Legacy mixed with a little Carbon Chalky finish to give a dark midnight blue colour. I applied this to the textured background of the tag the two circles from the Tando Grab bag of circles and the moon and  stars which I had cast from molds. I then swiped DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Burnished brass across the raised areas of the tag to highlight the texture as well as the moon and stars also. I then stencilled onto the larger of the circles with DecoArt Extreme Sheene in Burnished brass and attached the moon to the small circle and then edged both of the circles with the metallic lustre. A piece of brass chicken wire from my stash was then attached to the tag. Some twigs from the garden were given a swipe of metallic lustre before attaching on top of the chicken wire . Then the circles and stars layered on top. A splattering of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Titanium white was then applied. Word strips were then typed up on my vintage typewriter and attached to the tag base to finish.
