Death with Smudgefest 2015 Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of Smudgefest!  For all the details on the challenge and rules, please head on over to the Smeared  and Smudged blog HERE.
The Challenge for Day 5 is Fibre Friday.
Today your challenge is to incorporate some sort of fiber, string, thread, or yarn into your project. You can use a little or a lot, the choice is yours!
Here's my take and make on todays challenge an ATC using Anatomy Skull Digi from Smeared ink as my focal point.
I started by creating my background using distress inks. I then inked up an embossing folder with archival ink added my background and embossed to get a letter press effect. I attached my embossed background to a mount board base to give stability. I then die cut a frame and inked it up. I then printed of three Anatomy Skulls coloured with distress inks, fussy cut and then added Decoart Media crackle glaze. Once dry distress ink was added to highlight the cracks. I then layered up the skulls with Decopage glue to give dimension. I attached the frame to the tag with brads, added the skull and then tied some black fluffy fibre stuff on one side of the ATC. To finish a sentiment was added to the bottom of the tag.
Alas this is my last day in participating in Smudgefest for this year as I am away for the weekend with my Daughter and Grandchildren. I hope you have enjoyed my creations this week as much as I have loved making them.
As always thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read.
Hugs Fiona.
