Raven Flower Box

its day 2 of Smudgy Antics' Smudgefest!

Today's challenge is Trashy Tuesday

we are to upcycle something and I chose a ribbon spool....take a look

 kinda cool huh? here it is open

I just put a lil black headed pin for the lid to swivel on for it to open, I used Smeared ink stamps the raven inside and the mesh around the borders...I used black paints around the edges and the base and some green decorative paper that I made with acrylics....I made the flower using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die...I really did have fun making this and I see more in my future...this one is going to be a jewelry box....now what to put in it???????
I would like to enter this peice into the following challenges as well:

Smeared Ink's Junk Funk- Feather
