Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge: BLACK BIRDS

This week's challenge theme at Smudgy Antics is

This should be super easy!  

Just incorporate a black bird of some type, real or mythological, and use a stamped image somewhere on your project.
 You may use rubber, clear, or digital stamps.

Here is my creation:
(click image to enlarge)

I used "Raven 2" from Smeared Ink's "Quoth the Raven" digi set and
"Open Bust" from Smeared Ink's "Gross Anatomy" digi set.
The background is from a collage sheet by Itkupilli.

Everything was digitally colored and assembled.
Head over to the Smudgy Antics Blog for more inspiration from the Smeared Ink Design Team.

While Smudgy Antics offers awesome weekly challenges and prizes, the Smeared and Smudged forum offers month long challenges for those that may not have as much crafting time available. There are also monthly blog hops, matchbook and atc swaps, holiday swaps, etc.  If you join the forum you are sure to meet new friends and network with some very talented individuals.
