Christmas Moon

I was supposed to be cleaning my stamp studio today but I got distracted by an Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers which featured tags.  I used a piece of background I had created previously.  It was just a bit of netting stamped in Distress ink onto damp watercolor card stock.  I added various stamps, acrylic paint spatters and white embossing powder to make it look more festive.

I was really hoping that ultimately I would be able to make a "guy" Christmas card using the tag once completed.  To that end I kept the color choices fairly neutral with some metallic gold and some understated sparkle.
