dragons dream dt piece..TIO#122 nightmare

now this tag is not my usual style,
but i hope i have captured the recipe details , for this challenge
where we have a new crafty recipe:
a murder of crows,
a blue moon
and a chill wind.
.....................so here is mine:

I started by masking off a moon, and adding lots of inky distress
 to the tag, using lots of distress colours.
I then added my version of a tree
using a Tim embossing folder
and then adding more ink.

i then added some crackle accents and chunky pearl glitter ( thanks Mum!)
to give the chill idea?......
you with me?

I then added some trees in stormy skies distress,, some crows
and inked my blue moon..

Finally i added a sentiment
and a crow (from Dylusions bird on a wire set)
and gave him a glossy beak.

make sure you hop across here to see all the fab DT makes
and why not dream with the dragon a little and add your own entry
there is now the chance to be picked as a dragon dreamboat too!

have a fun and inky day,
if all goes well we will be on our way to holidayland as you read this!
