Edgar Allan Poe Strikes Again!

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!

Hi, it's Dot here today with a tutorial for you
which is Poe inspired.  It is for our current Silhouette Challenge.

The Grunge Tree makes a sombre backdrop for Edgar Allan Poe.
And just for fun, the Zombie Chicken looks suitably scared.
The words are from Dogs Like Me.

Step 1:  Stamp Poe onto your card. And again onto some photo copy paper (cut out to use as a mask).

Step 2:  Mask Poe and then stamp the Grunge Tree. I've used brown and black Archival ink for this.

Step 3:  Make a circle mask using a circle die and place the mask above Poe's head.

Step 4:  On an acrylic block swipe some Tea Dye Distress Ink and some water and stamp this around the circle mask.  I've also blended a little Tea Dye ink around the edge of the moon so that it is more pronounced. Remove the mask.

Step 5:  Stamp the Zombie Chicken so that he is sitting on Poe's head and is placed in the moon spotlight.

Step 6:  To finish, stamp the words from Dogs Like Me in random places in the background.  I've used Aged Mahogany in Distress Oxides because it tones in with the browns and stamps crisply.  I've also stamped some extra words from ATC Text Set 1.  Trim the card down and mount onto black and white cardstock.  I've also painted some Tea Dye ink onto Poe's face for a little more effect, and some Black Soot onto the Zombie Chicken.

I hope you enjoy this card and have a go at making it.
Remember, we have a Silhouette Challenge  on until the end of the month.
