Bad Moon Rising

What's the challenge for you guys over at Haunted Design House this week? Well we're being sponsored by non other than  
If you head on over to Haunted  Design House - you'll be able to see some of the fabulous offers available right now as well!!
So this week's challenge is that your project has to have a moon on it, BUT considering this is Macabre Mondays - not just any old moon....
You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that depicts a BIG BAD MOON.
Make it full, waxing, waning or crescent. Just make it big
and the main focus of your wonderfully wicked project.
Cute will get you in the door, but the Dungeon prefers things
creepy and dark.

What did I make?
I went for a hanging - either suspend from the ceiling or hang on the wall - it's double sided after all.
Made from one of those old CDs that would otherwise be destined for the bin. I basically followed the sketchie over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday for the layout.
and the other side

The front features a fabulous image from Papelitos Stamps. She's called 

Marea tombstone. Coloured with promarkers with DI on the moon and fussy cut out. The BP is from my ancient stash, just added a bit of black ink to it. Some bats from Aly's Inky Fingers added. The reverse also features stamps from Aly's Inky Fingers

For decoration, out came my enormous pile of seed beads. Threaded onto wire and bent into shape for the hanging bits. The swirls above Marea are hand drawn and tiny nail art gems stuck on.
Some spiky ribbon from stash completed the hanging.

Your turn to show us those Big Bad Moon projects, don't forget to go look at my fellow Minions' pieces of fantastic artwork for more inspiration. Looking forward to seeing yours.

I would like to enter this into the challenge at
