Blackbird - smudge fest


Evening,

It is day 6 of Smudgefest and today's challenge is an ATC based on the below Beatles song. I chose the line "take these sunken eyes and learn to see." The main image is from smeared ink, he looks so sad I thought it fitted. I masked the central image and then used distress inks on the background and a Tim Holtz stamp. I then sprayed a mister to give a stipple effect. Sad teddy coloured with flexi markers.

Blackbird - Beatles
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free
Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night
Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

you know how when you should be doing something you do something else? well here is the first ATC. Main image lil grumpies bottoms up.
