Lavinia Stamps January 2020 Monthly Challenge - Moonlight Magic

On the first of each month, Lavinia Stamps announce a new monthly challenge theme.  The theme for January 2020 is "Moonlight Magic".  You can enter the challenge up to five times in one month.  If your name is randomly drawn after the 25th of the month, you will receive £40 vouchers to spend on lovely Lavinia goodies.

I made a tag as my second challenge sample, it has a beautiful sparkle which I hope you can see from my little video clip.

I started by giving my tag a coat of "Faded Jeans" Distress Oxide Ink.  Then at the top of the tag I blended in a darker shade of Distress Oxide Ink called "Chipped Sapphire".

My next step was to stamp the "Fairy Barnacles" at the bottom of the tag using Versafine Clair "Fantasia" purple ink.

I dragged an anti-static bag across the surface to the tag then using Wow! Clear Embossing Pad, I stamped the "Fairy Dandelions", coating them in Wow! Super Fine Metallic Silver Embossing Powder and set with a heat gun.

I repeated the process stamping the "Meadow Grass" with the clear embossing pad and using Wow! "Silent Night" embossing powder which is a dark grey/black with a beautiful sparkle to it.  I again set it with the heat gun.

I stamped the fairy, which is part of the "Three Dancing Fairies" stamp set in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" Black ink.  I added some touches of sparkle to her wings and around her using a Silver Glitter Signo Pen.
