Smeared and Smudged April Member Hop

Hello my lovelies!  I am so excited that Alex has allowed me to visit with you again today!  Things here have been a bit touch and go for me due to a recent addition to the family.  At the moment, as you can see, Tinker and I seem to have a truce in place.  It might take me just a bit longer to get her pecked into submission won over.

In the meantime, distance seems to be a good thing...  Now, on the creating that has been happening around here.  The challenge for the hop this month for Smeared and Smudged forum members is to use metal, and brads and eyelets don't count.  Alex decided to use foil stickers and gold metalic paint.  I think she is stretching things brilliant.

Here is a fabulous tag with a rather regal and somewhat Egyptian looking raven, check out the eye.  The tag was decorated with the Glimmer Mist that had accumulated on a screen and then smooshed onto this particular tag- waste not, want not. (even though the google eyes got thrown away!)  The words "i'm watching you" are from the Li'l Grumpies stamp set at Smeared Ink.  That amazing crown is some Maya Road Chipboard painted with a gold paint pen. 

It has been lovely visiting with you again.  Perhaps we can talk Alex into letting me out a bit more often.  I have been feeling a bit, what's the word.... caged, ROFLOL!!!

Be certain to check out all the fabulous creations from the other members of Smeared and Smudged hopping this month.
