Smudgefest Day 4 - Twisted Thursday

Oh my, this week is going in quickly! Glad my mojo is keeping up - or at least trying to!
The brief for Day 4 at Smudgefest over on the Smudgy Antics blog is an ATC challenge - create an ATC, using at least one Smeared Ink image, with a 'twist'!

I have been mulling over this all day - with the time differences, the challenge goes live for me at 8am so I have most of the day to think about it! In the end, I took a cage to the bottom of the garden to see what I could catch!

The cage was white, I have coloured it with a black Sharpie and used a glue pen to attach some sparkly embossing powder to give the cage a shimmer. I attached it to purple pearl card and put a brad through the top of the cage to adhere it to the ATC and allow it to 'twist' open.

The background for the atc itself is black pearl paper on a card base that has been coated with clear rock candy distress paint and some Perfect Pearls sprinkled over the paint while wet. Think the goth fairy I caught also got stuck in the paint!

The goth fairy was coloured using promarkers and sparkly embossing powder attached to her wings and hair using the glue pen and heat gun. I have been very short on time today and I was trying to experiment a bit with the background, I will work more on this idea and see how it progresses! I think the idea is there, but perhaps the execution could have been better.... watch this space.

Thanks for looking
