Happy 31 Days of Halloween Friends!
Welcome to day #7.
Of course Edgar Allan Poe is one of the fathers of Halloween so it's only appropriate that we throw a bit of his spirit into this celebration of the macabre.
This card is very much me...where the creepy factor meets the glitter girl in me!
Big surprise here but I have a very large collection of glitter cardstock AND sequins - LOL!! I thought these nifty stamps were the perfect place for them to come together.
I started off by creating the background for the shaker. I started by placing a mask for the moon off to one side then began layering inks on a lavender piece of cardstock. When I was satisfied with the colors I stamped the Raven3 on the panel. I removed the moon mask and applied a bit of white pigment ink to that area.
I added a bit of pen work and a little glitter to the raven, colored the branch and added some spooky clouds and called it good. I then set about making the shaker bit by cutting a piece of glitter cardstock and die-cutting the center. I then added a piece of plastic, some of the many sequins in my collection and popped it on the raven panel. I then stamped the Nevermore image on white cardstock, fussy cut and added it to the card.
Hope you enjoy this glitzy take on my favorite holiday!
Have a sparklie day everyone!!
