Smudgefest day one!

I have been so hyped about this event! I wasn't a member of smeared and smudged for the last SmudgeFest so this is all new to me. If you'd like to know more about it click here and have a read and maybe join in too!!

I have made a tag for this first challenge which was to use at least 3 of the following: 
  • fibers or ribbon
  • metal
  • paint
  • chalk
  • newspaper
  • pencil
  • deco paper
  • glitter
  • stencils

I have used Fibers, metal, paint, chalk(well chalk ink), glitter and stencils for my Tag

I sprayed over the tag with glimmer mist and when it was dry inked over the edges with distress ink. I then used chalk ink to stamp the  raven from the Quoth The Raven rubber stamp set from Smeared ink. the birdcage is a Tim Holtz die cut that I cut in black before using a brown and copper paint dauber to go over it, while it was still a little wet I sprinkled on some glitter. I used a piece of lace, a doilie and a boarder cut out as stencils to ink over to make the patterns on the tag. I then finished the tag off with some fibers, a glittered metal brad and a metal spider charm.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
