Dragon Wind Chime Smeared Ink DT project for the Design Team Throwdown #5- Tooth and Claw

Hello Friends!
Myself and 2 other fab Smeared Ink design team members are going head to head in a friendly and fierce battle with the best design teams for round #5 of the Smeared and Smudged Design Team Throw down!  The winners of Throwdown #4, Quoth the Raven, chose the theme for round 5 - Tooth and Claw.  You can check out our Smeared Ink DT entries here and you can see all the entries and cast your votes on the forum here, voting closes Thursday May 30 at midnight!

For my entry into the throwdown I created a Dragon Wind Chime featuring Smeared Ink's digi image called Dragon Love from their digi set Dragon Love.  Plenty of teeth and claws represented here and I'm thrilled with how it turned out ;0)

Image printed on regular ink jet printer paper, Polyform air dry clay, wind chimes, Copic Sketch markers, Marvy Le Plume Permanent markers, Letraset metallic markers, Black Prismacolor marker, Tea Dye Distress Ink, Aleene's Black acrylic paint, Delta Ceramcoat matte varnish, Xacto knife, pliers, wire cutters, silver wire, glass heart pendant, screw eye hook, super glue, variegated metallic cord, tin foil, empty wine bottle, dry embossing tool with a ball end, sharp pointed pokey tool, tooth picks, white craft glue.

I'll be sharing a tutorial on the Smeared and Smudged forum on how to make my Dragon Wind Chime, I will update this post and let you know when it's up!

Here's a little video of my Dragon Wind Chime in action :0)
