Quoth the Raven tag



I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges, so created this CAS tag to fit the bill!

I started with a regular tag, and added some black acrylic paint, let it dry, then dry brushed some gray and touch of white over it.  The image and verse are from Smeared and Smudged's Poe set.  I love making tags for bookmarks and leaving them in books I borrow from friends or the library or donate.


Challenges:
Quoth the Raven- anything Poes
Haunted Design House- bare bones (CAS)

Love the effect you got from the paints! What a great surprise it must be to find a handmade bookmark when you're not expecting it! That's a lovely gesture. Hugs~
