Week 51 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2018

So it's the penultimate week of the 2018 tag challenge.  How the time has flown.

The prompt for Week 51 is "Christmas Decorations"

For my tag, I went the traditional bauble shape.  I made a background by masking off a circle for the moon and then using various shades of blue and grey Distress inks to create the night sky.  While the mask was in position I splattered Gesso using a fan shaped paint brush to create the snowflakes.  I then left the Gesso to dry.

Using plain white card and dies that came free with issue 168 of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine, I cut two layers for the snow scene.  I then die cut into a circle and layered the scenes using foam pads.

Returning to the sky scene, I removed the mask and dabbed some Distress ink to shade the moon,  I then die cut the sky-scape into a circle too and then layered the snowe scene . onto the sky-scape.  

Finally I added a little rectangle to the top using an off cut of the sky and punched a hole through it to allow for hanging.
