Absolutely perfect in every way, Paula! I love that you brought Poe back to us again (I have a little tribute to the Master on Dream today!) so everyone can get their Poe fix for the week? Awesome background and such a clever use of this stamp! xx

Everyday has been another stamp that I am feeling I have to have! Love it!

Yay! So glad you liked this one, Nan! I appreciate your kind words very much. <3

Paula F (MuseOfMixedMedia.blogspot.com) said...

Right, Mary? I always thought that Poe's raven was a boy...but then I got to thinking, Why not a granny raven? LOL

Paula F (MuseOfMixedMedia.blogspot.com) said...

Thank you, Rebecca! I did the spiderweb first in fine black artist's pen but then went over it with a glitter pen. In person it stands out a lot more...couldn't really capture the sparkle in the photoscan. :/

Hey, thanks, Viki! I love my gelli plate! Have you ever done gelatin monoprinting? If not, do try...and prepare to fall HARD down a rabbit hole! XD

Paula F (MuseOfMixedMedia.blogspot.com) said...

Thanks, Susan! Looking forward to reading about your competition!

Paula F (MuseOfMixedMedia.blogspot.com) said...

I hear you, Amanda--I truly think Lost Coast Designs has some of the best images out there. I could go broke collecting all the cool ones!

Love your Poe card...great background using the gelli plate, I have one. Have you seen the Clarity Stamps new little gelli plates with little stencils. I cut a piece of the one I have and made two small squares and just use parts of the stencils I already have....there's always away around things if one doesn't want to by the new!
