Smudgefest - Day 6

Nearly at the end of the week long Smudgefest over at Smudgy Antics.
Today's challenge

SATURDAY'S SONG!
Make an ATC based on these song lyrics:

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


To qualify for the grand prize of $200 of Smeared Ink goodies - their stamps have to be used in the project. So far I have managed just that. After all - there are so many gorgeous stamps to choose from!!
So to today's effort from me.....
This is it closed
I tried to keep my inky fingers to a minimum  lol


and fully opened
I have used the Raven Wings from the Smeared Ink, Quoth the Raven stamp set to form the wings of the ATC.

I have also used one of the main images and the two ravens from the Holy City set. Again from Smeared Ink.

Other stamps used are from the Dark Boundaries plate 52 from Cherry Pie/De Stempelwinkel
