31 Days of Halloween Day 10 - The Raven Witch

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun! 

Happy 10th of October from Laurie and I hope it finds you creating some fun Halloween goodies that you can share on the blog challenge going on until the end of the month.

This is another card I created using the LCD Raven Prince Small stamp and the Grunge Black Swirl Background stamp from Carmen's Veranda.

I used a background paper I had made previously with my Gelli plate (again!), some green, blue and yellow acrylic paints and a piece of corrugated cardboard that I used to make the patterns in the paint.  I heat embossed the Raven right onto my background with black embossing powder.  I then took the Grunge Black Swirl background stamp, and using just the edges, I stamped around the edges with black ink.  I put a little witch's hat on his head and glued a star to it.  Using my vintage typewriter, I typed "Nevermore" onto a green scrap layered with white and attached it to his beak.  The whole piece gets mounted onto black card stock then to a white card.

The complete list of participants in the hop is shown on the sidebar.
