Day 15 Smeared and Smudged 4th Annual "31 Days of Halloween"

I created another tag today. I used distress inks in scattered straw, tea dye and bundled sage for the ground. For the sky I used denim jeans. I stamped the tree by Rubbernecker stamps with black archival ink along with the sentiment from Studio G. I fashioned the grave stones by using a tag punch. I then distressed them with distress ink in vintage photo. I took a pencil and made faint marks across the "tombstones" to make it look like writing. I then used one of my funky dollar store paper clips on the top.
