31 Days of Halloween - Day 2

This will be short, as I almost missed the deadline waiting til this morning to do this. Man, I hate migraines - suck the life out of you, or at least any ambition I'll do better for tomorrow's project now that I'm feeling somewhat human. Wish I'd had the foresight to do projects last month LOL. Anywho here's my project, I went with a tag:\


Distressed the tag with walnut ink/black soot & antique paper Distress Ink, ran it thru an embossing folder also distressed (technique from Tim Holtz). I then used the Poe stamp from Smeared Ink's "Quoth the Raven" set stamped in India Ink Black and distressed. Colored a raven with black soot, added a couple of flowers I made from a shopping bag & Perfect Pearls Mist (homemade), and a piece of webby ribbon. Also added some ribbons. Again, poor scan apologies...

Now off you go!
