the whole of the moon...........

Hey there bloggers,
well the rain is clearing here and so are the clouds in my crafty head, after yesterdays not so great crafty day, I seem to be happier with what I have accomplished today!yippee!!!!
So here is my tag inspired by the challenge over at dragonsdream, which I have naughtily missed for a few weeks..and I had a go at using a digi...from tiddly inks.
so here she blows..
I started by printing my digi and masking over it fairly roughly, as I wanted a kind of ghostly halo round the image.I also masked off the moon. Then I set too with my yummy dylusions paints and made a painty background which I then overstamped with various stamps from Tim Holtz, and a stampotique swirl, which is yummy and so useful!
Once dry I removed the masks and coloured the image using promarkers, overstamping the moon with bats, I love bats!!do you?
The quote was also from tiddly inks and I am very proud as thanks to the advice I managed to re size it!!!I am not so hot on technology so for me to do this unaided and without a safety net was pretty WOW!!

Finally I added vintage seam binding ribbon, some crystal glitter and glossy black glaze pen to her crown.

I hope you like it and I am entering her for the following challenges:
