Honestly speaking, I am not sure what MESSY really means. It’s dumb, I know. Ha! I thought something dark, dirty or muddy might qualify as MESSY and this tag is what I came up with. For me, this is really a challenge because I tend to use pretty and bright color schemes. I'm delighted that I challenged myself to go beyond my comfort zone. Hope this tag with galaxy background is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

6. Cut the paper into a tag and sponge the edge with Black Soot Distress Oxide.
7. Stamp stars and heat emboss in silver. Stamp moon and text and heat emboss in white. The messy tag is done!
I'd like to thank Jennifer McGuire for the inspiration.
