Smeared and Smudged Day 2

April brings spring flowers and showers...

 and now a brand new event hosted by

 Smeared Ink!

April Muse Three Day Blog Hop

Black Dragon

Just a few of us this time so I am sure you will be able to call on everyone!

This is a three day blog hop that will feature three daily themes:

April 1 Theme: All Fool's Day- Create a project that is foolish or fun.

April 2 Theme: Awaken The Beast- Create a dark spring project that features creatures or animals.

April 3 Theme: Zombie Resurrection...

which leads me nicely to my Birthday on April 4...

I decided to make three tags for this hop...this is my second...

Well I have made my share of cards featuring fluffy bunnies, pastel coloured eggs and little yellow chicks - I was trying for the antithesis of these!

Eggs - ovals cut from 'wrinkle free distressed' watercolour paper (Distress Ink smeared on my work mat, spritzed with water and mopped up by the paper) and then with crackle medium applied...not sure if you can see the cracks...

Bunnies and Chicks ...Grumpy Bunny and Devil Boy coloured with Promarkers and then covered with crackle medium.

My tag base - brown card matted with more 'Wrinkle free Distress' and then covered with some wide webby ribbon.

An eyelet and ribbon and then my motifs...I quite liked it with just the eggs!

That's it - my tag for Day Two - hope you will stop by tomorrow...
I will add this to Smudgy Antics April Challenge

Happy Crafting!
