It's Friday and time for another challenge over at the Art by Mi Ran blog.  I can finally and officially (and rather excitedly) announce that I'm part of the DT and this is my very first project for the team.  Head over to the blog to enter your projects in challenge #12, the theme as always is anything goes

For this project I have chosen to work with Lunar Deity.  After colouring an Art by Mi Ran image in black and white a few months ago (view it here) I wanted to do another and thought Lunar would be perfect

I coloured her with my grey scale spectrum noir markers, coloured the moon in yellow tones and added some gold embossing to the stars.  I've made a very simple twisted easel card and prettied it up with dies from................

The candle was a bit of a challenge as I wanted the to be strong enough to carry the heavy candle, so I've doubled the black card and used gold inside it to give layers.  I've used a die from .......... to pretty up the sides.........

And made my own paper roses for the top of the box which I have gold embossed just around the top, and layered onto die cuts from spellbinders and xcut
