Out of this world tag

I'm back for week 2 as a guest designer this month for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge! Woo-hoo!
.

Our challenge this week is Lucky Stars.

I went with the "stars" part of the challenge and created a galaxy background on this tag. I blended Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot distress inks on a #5 manila tag. Then I splattered a black spray ink and let it dry completely before adding Brushed Pewter, and Picket Fence spray stains, also drying those in between. I then pulled out Altenew's To The Moon stamp set to create the moon and the sentiment. The moon is a 2-step stamp, The first layer was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink and then top with Slate. Then some crinkle ribbon and glitter tape finish it off.


I have 2 kids that are each having a space-themed birthday party this month. I'm thinking of putting these tags on the goody bags with a "Thanks for coming" note on the back. 


Come link up your projects for a chance to win $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store!

This is such a pretty tag, Amber! I think you nailed that magical feeling of space and this reminded me of trips I took to the planetarium when I was in school-- the ceiling was transformed into a sea of stars. I love how you're echoed that sense of depth here! Excellent work!
