It's Only a Paper Moon in a Scrap of Darkness

This is my design team entry for our third main challenge at Bella Creations.  The April Muse challenge uses this lovely Gecko Galz image of a woman swinging in front of the moon. This is one of the images from their newly released Paper Moon ephemera set.  I fussy cut her out and hung the flower ropes of the swing inside the little shrine ATC that I made.  The Bella Muse challenge is to use the image in any form of art you choose.
Not only do you get this free image for your artwork, you also may be the challenge winner, by random draw, of this amazing prize from this month's sponsor, Scraps of Darkness.
Scraps of Darkness advertises themselves as not your Mother's kit club.  Their scrapbook kits are designed for the "alternative" scrapper. They specialize in creating monthly kits for scrappers who love dark layouts, steampunk, grunge, and other alternative styles. Kits come out on the 15th of the month along with amazing layouts for inspiration from the very talented Scraps of Darkness design team.  As a matter of fact, they are having a design team call right now.  So do check out their site, kits, gallery, and news at the Scraps of Darkness blog. You'll also see some of the Scraps of Darkness design team work in our Bella Creations gallery.

More about my ATC:
I made a shrine ATC using a matchbox.  I learned this technique from the tutorial we had in March in my Oh La La group at Bella Creations.  The tutorial was provided by one of our members, Lesley D.
I painted the box black and put inside a scrap of black paper with silver dots (hard to see in the photo).  I used some punchinella (sequin waste) as a stencil  and stamped silver ink on the ATC.  Then I used some delicate black trim to frame the inside of the box.  I added some ribbon and netting from a veggie bag as well as a Petaloo flower.

I hope to see you this month, at Bella Creations, entering any or all of the three challenges that I've shown you in my three latest posts.  Great Challenges!  Great Prizes!  Great Fun!
