Rock N Rolla Tag

Rock N Rolla Tag
I created this tag for the August Rock N Rolla Challenge on Smeared and Smudged. The inspiration song was Buried Alive by Creature Feature. One of the lyrics was "heart under the floorboards, beats for Lenore, nevermore". I decided to try and capture that verse in my artwork. The music video was really creepy. It reminded me of the old black and white horror films of the past.

I used three digital stamps for this challenge. The cracked heart and the word Nevermore is from Smeared Ink. The skeleton is from Wonderstrange. I used my cricut machine to cut out the puzzle shape for my tag. The tag is "blinged" out with a fabric bowtie, a silver metal heart charm, glitter, rhinestones and black and white fiber. I think it rocks!!!

This tag qualifies for a lot of challenges going on this week:
